Laguna Beach has very strict leash laws. I noticed the dog was not wearing a prong and/or choke collar, that is inexcusable for a powerful dog like this one.

Fish and Wildlife will likely pay Kelly's daughter a visit and cite her for killing a sea lion, still a protected species.

So he broke the law by not keeping his dog on a well made leash.

The dog attacks a protected species.

No charges.

Different set of laws?

The girls/the owner caused the accident therefore the dog killing the seal. They had no business having a dog they cannot control, you know. My hubby was recently attacked by a pit bull. The dog just went bonkers and attacked him. The owner could not control the dog so it happened. This was the owners’ responsibility to maintain the dog.

Oh, not him..His wife just had a ship named after her.

His daughter will get special treatment or maybe even a Zoo named after her.

I had a gun I could not control. Crazy gun went off by itself a number of times.
I took the bolt out and threw it in a lake.

I did it for the children...

The scary thing is that that dog could have attacked a young child instead of a baby seal. Kelly's actions in bringing that beast to the beach without a choke collar and losing control of it was reckless.

And this idiot just bought an AR-15. If he is as careless with his weapons as he is with his dogs, then Gabby Giffords is in danger of being shot... again.

The gun shop returned his money and refused to complete the sale. :)

Was this assault dog registered with the AKC? After all, it is equipped with a nasty demeanor and multiple teeth instead of the five round teeth normal dogs have?

Was this dog licensed?

More questions the press and the police did not answer.

They probably determined that he was a reckless buffoon who couldn't be trusted with a firearm.

He sure as hell is reckless with his pets.

the sea lion was alive until he got there. Probably the only way to get it loose was to shred it's neck that way.

The state would leap on the average citizen for that - jail time a certainty.

Well, she is horribly traumatized by the event.

Isn't that the truth. you or me would be in big trouble.

Funny, he and his wife claim guns are bad and what does he want a dangerous dog for.

What a hypocrite.
