Stop talking about me behind my back! Sea lion crashes Chile fisherman’s interview… about ‘plague of sea lions’
- A sea lion opened a gate and crashed an interview that was talking about them
- A Chile local fisherman dubbed the 3000 sea lions resting on the beach ‘plague’
- They were fleeing from predators such as killer whales and gale force winds
A naughty sea lion opened a gate and crashed an interview when a resident in Chile was talking about what he dubbed ‘plague of sea lions’ to the camera.
More than 3000 sea lions took a beach in the Bio Bio region, central Chile, to flee from the gale-force winds and predators such as killer whales.
Local residents were happy to see the animals but some fishermen complained ‘no control has been taken’ for the ‘plague of sea lions’.
The video shows a resident from local town Tome is saying ‘this is a plague’, as if not happy to be called as a disease, a sea lion opened the unlocked gate behind the person and came out.
A man beside the interviewee waves his hand and tries to force the sea lion back to the beach but the sea lion refuses.
Residents from different places in Chile travelled to see the animals, calling them ‘wonderful’.
One lady said she felt sorry that the sea lions ‘came here running away from killer whales’.

The group of sea lions have been on the beach for about 28 days, according to the fisherman whose interview was interrupted.
The marine mammals were thought to have been fleeing predators such as orcas, although gale force winds in the area could also be a factor.
The South American sea lion’s technical name is the Patagonian sea lion. They were often seen resting on fishing boats, sometimes even causing the boats to sink.
