Two sea lions chased off a group of people on a beach in the La Jolla area of ​​San Diego, according to a report by NBC San Diego. A video of the incident is going viral on social media platforms, showing beachgoers running away from the approaching animals.
Lifeguards were on standby at the beach and ensured no one was injured. They also helped the sea lions to leave the beach safely.

She told NBC that the sea lions were sleeping, but one of the women on the beach went "too close" to click the photo. "Then they woke up and started chasing people," Ms Yeyna said. I started recording because it was fun to watch, to see all these tourists being carried away by these giant sea lions,” she continued.
