Authorities persuading Emerson, a 500lb elephant seal in Victoria, Canada, to move along. Emerson had previously been relocated 126 miles away from Victoria, ‘far from human habitation’, for his own safety. Less than a week later, he made the trek along the coast of Vancouver Island back to the city

Incidents of Aggression

Hey everyone I am really interested in stories involving interactions between humans and elephant seals. I understand that the bulls can be quite unpleasant when provoked and that they can move much faster than one would expect on land.

Could anyone point me to some articles/books/videos documenting attacks on humans or really anything else interesting regarding human/elephant seal interactions?

Thank you!
