"A Garden Grove fisherman was charged today with violating the federal Marine Mammal Protection Act by stabbing a California sea lion that later had to be euthanized.
Hai Nguyen, 24, of Garden Grove was charged with a misdemeanor count of taking and "attempting to harass, hunt, and kill a California sea lion," according to documents filed in U.S. District Court in Santa Ana this morning.
Nguyen was arrested in Newport Beach on July 27 for allegedly stabbing a California sea lion repeatedly with a steak knife after the animal stole his bait. The sea lion, which was swimming near the dock Nguyen was fishing from on Balboa Peninsula, was apparently so close that the fisherman could reach down and stab the animal.
The sea lion, a 6-foot female weighing about 150 pounds, was trapped by animal control officers and taken to Pacific Marine Mammal Center in Laguna Beach that afternoon. Doctors determined the animal could not be saved and euthanized it.
Fuck this guy. Asshole. Dick. Nothing better than seeing the playful cool sea lions around you out in a lineup. Stabbing the poor creature? For taking your fish?
He should be stabbed with the same knife as many times as he stabbed the sea lion. If he doesn't make it, oh well, euthanize him like the sea lion. Pound of flesh. Fucker.
