A woman has sparked outrage online after a frightened sea lion “kicked” her boat and “kicked” it into killer whale-infested waters.
The woman who posted on the TikTok account @nutaball captured a pet test near her home on Vancouver Island, Canada.
At the beginning of the now-deleted first video, the sea lion startles the woman after she jumps on board.
“Oh my god, I don’t know what to do,” she says in shock.
“Where did you come from? I’ve never even seen you there? Where did you come from? Holy f***.”
Then, in the distance, she sees a pod of killer whales making their way towards her ship – it appears to be chasing a sea lion.
“You have to go, you can’t be here,” he can be heard saying to the sea lion in a panicked tone.
In another video filmed later, the woman confronts Seal before scaring him off the boat.
Before sending the sea lion to his certain death, the woman shares some unsolicited advice: “You need to go, I know you have to suffer honey but the world works like this.”
TikTok ends up speeding away from its pod of orcas and back home to safety.
The video has sparked outrage online with a man calling the woman a “coldheart”.
“Unbelievable that humans can be so cold hearted,” he tweeted.
“I would guard the seal. Compassion … get some, it’s free!”
Another tweeted: “He came for help, what a bad person.”
Before deleting her TikTok page, the woman responded to a comment left under one of her videos explaining why she scared the sea lion out of her boat.
“Can you imagine the boat acting up and taking off and the propeller hits one of the 250 orcas alive for two million sea lions?”
According to WWF, killer whales and sea lions are both endangered species.
