ENCINITAS, Calif. – An encounter between a curious dog and a sea lion had beachgoers at Cardiff State Beach entertained Sunday afternoon.

Hajnalka Kovacs Stiblane and his family saw the small dog get away from it’s owner and took off toward the sea lion.  Stiblane started taking pictures and said it appeared as though the dog was trying to attack the sea lion.

The owner quickly leashed the dog and pulled it away from the wild animal.

Stiblane took the pictures near the south end of Cardiff State Beach Sunday.

Sea lions along San Diego have gained quite the attention as of late.  As El Nino storms started to fade, video of a sea lion hanging out on a patio in Oceanside surfaced.
