    A guy was attacked in the Harbor in Kodiak back around 1995. He was sitting on the rail as the boat was coming into the harbor loaded with fish. The sea lion came up out of the water and grabbed him by the butt and dragged him into the water. He was badly bitten, but survived without major complications. I think his name was Murphy. Sea lions are large predatory critters who will eat any kind of meat or fish that they encounter.

    I remember that, also, I remember an attack with a guy named Murphy as well. Kodiak!

    Murphy was a hell of a friend, sadly, he has passed.

    Yes, if we had decent health care that old tar would still be around. I knew Murph as well. I remember him getting bit in the ass at the dock
