The girl wanted to shoot a video with the animal: she went up to him, touched her hand. The animal did not like contact with humans. The seal wanted to bite the girl who harassed him, since she managed to run away, writes Life.

The animal the couple decided to pet belongs to the Hawaiian monk seal, a rare marine mammal that is on the verge of extinction. According to the laws of the state of Hawaii, the punishment for touching these animals is a fine of up to $ 50 or up to five years in prison.
