Russian fishermen find massive surprise in their net

russian-sea-lionThe crew of a Russian fishing boat got a very big surprise when they pulled up their catch from the watery depths. As the net is raised, one of the fisherman can be heard saying, [translated] “I don’t think there’s anything interesting.” He was wrong. When they released their net, they found plenty of fish, and one massive, and presumably very full, sea lion. The fishermen attempt to goad the unwelcome passenger back into the sea by spraying it with a hose and giving it a few jabs with a broom. They seem to realize their attempts to shoo the enormous creature away are utterly futile, and let the lumbering giant take its time. “Dive already!” one of the fisherman says as the animal lingers on the edge of the boat.
