They had enough.

Watch as two sea lions chase beachgoers from a beach in the La Jolla area of San Diego.

There's no report as to what may have triggered this response from the sea lions, but some speculate that mating season often forces them to become territorial.

As you can see in the video below, those on the beach were running from these massive animals and lifeguards were on stand-by.


The sea lions did ultimately retreat back into the water and there were no reports of people injured in this wild scene.

Let this video, like others from the beach, be a reminder to always be aware of your surroundings.

We have shared a number of photos and videos from the beach this summer and often we are reminded that we are just guests in some of these environments.

Some of the comments from this bizarre scene from the west coast were entertaining, while others made good points.
