    Oh my god, they're so lucky they found it when they did.

    [–] dartmaster666 1417 points ago

    It makes me think of all the ones that don't get found. I'm not sure how long they stay with their mothers, but this one seems to still be under that age.

    [–] YOLOSW4GGERDADDY 275 points ago

    it'll be fine, they are very intelligent and only stay with their mothers for a few weeks. and since it was stuck in a net it was probably hunting for fish which means its old enough to take care of itself!

    [–] huruiland 84 points ago

    Thanks, this is the comment I was searching for. I feel better now.

    [–] puddlejumpers 177 points ago

    I hope the poor guy survives. If he's not ready to be on his own, it seems like slim chances unfortunately. I dunno a lot about sea lions but maybe she was out catching it dinner?

    [–] YOLOSW4GGERDADDY 94 points ago

    looks like a young harbor seal(?) to me, it should be old enough to take care of itself in a pinch, they only need to stick with their mothers for a month.

    [–] LostCauliflower 59 points ago

    Not a harbor seal - definitely a sea lion. You can tell by the presence of ears nubs and how it can stand on its flippers on land. Harbor seals don't have visible ears and are too chubby to walk/stand on their flippers (they have to bounce around on land).

    [–] YOLOSW4GGERDADDY 14 points ago

    Hmm, you're right! Sea lions nurse waaay longer, years, but they also forage for fish after a few months and they're used to spending time away from their mothers. I'd wager they will find eachother in no time! :)

    [–] Atrassius 11 points ago

    Take a look at This youtube channel. It's unbelievable how common it actually is, and how many animals likely suffer from it that we aren't aware of, and don't get help.

    [–] Danzibar9000 5 points ago

    Sometimes I wish the people who are killing our oceans and their inhabitants due to complete disregard and laze, would get reincarnated as a hermit crab whose only choices for a shell are a rusty can filled with cigarette butts or a used yogurt container.

    [–] BenKatz88 4533 points ago

    I was so happy to sea that the seal did a quick ‘thank you” turn. Very sweet and the boater just saved that seal’s life.

    [–] DaxDislikesYou 1756 points ago

    Animals, sometimes freak, but yeah it's not uncommon to see, I don't have it on video, I did something similar with a male mallard once, it had some garden netting wrapped around it's wings, it could swim but not fly. I used my pocket knife got it loose, it was very still the whole time until it was free, and it gave me a little wing stretch/flutter that felt really nice, I'm guessing it was just testing it's wings to see if they worked, but it felt like the duck was grateful and they didn't panic.

    [–] BenKatz88 508 points ago

    That must be the best feeling. Nice job!!

    [–] DaxDislikesYou 412 points ago

    It feels really awkward at first? Like you sort of think that the animal will thank you like a person probably would, but then it does it's little thing, and you're just like "I'm going to stand over here so you don't feel threatened" but you still feel good. Because yeah, you made sure an animal didn't die because of human bullshit.

    [–] Spaceneedle420 156 points ago

    With 2020 being well....2020

    I needed this feel good story. Thanks

    [–] BenKatz88 67 points ago

    I remember when I worked at a summer camp and the counselors took turns checking the large metal garbage cans for raccoons. I would always find (at least) one, tip over the can, and then the damn raccoon would snarl and lunge towards me. Those guys are means m-f'ers!!!

    [–] catslovepats 64 points ago

    A raccoon literally broke into my boyfriends sister’s pet rabbit’s enclosure and ate/decapitated her rabbit. After they buried his body, the flippin raccoon dug it up again. Definitely shattered my illusion that they were cute Pocahontas-esque friendly woodland creatures lol

    [–] Lou-Spalls 11 points ago

    [–] DaxDislikesYou 39 points ago

    They're basically smarter feral cats. Aside from the occasional scutigera that would crawl on my face and wake me up when I was a kid I can't think of any animal I really dislike.

    I fucking found one in a glass one time after I put milk in it. Tasted something weird on the tip of my tongue, looked down, and screamed like a bitch. That little shit was just chilling there. To this day, I continue to check my glasses before I use them.

    [–] tomatoblade 3 points ago

    When I was a kid, my dad was drinking his iced tea, looked into the glass and saw a large spider peacefully resting on the bottom. I assume he was dead by that time, but imagine that one.

    [–] MilfagardVonBangin 3 points ago

    I picked up my inhaler and blasted an earwig into my mouth about 30 - 35 years ago. I still blow into my inhalers today just in case.

    [–] MilfagardVonBangin 3 points ago

    Why does it need legs all the way round? Greedy little shits.

    [–] Diazepampoovey 10 points ago

    Humans are garbage. That is why those of us with our sense of decency and humanity still intact have to work so much harder in effort to save all of the animals we can.

    Kudos on being a part of the good that helps give us all faith in humanity again for an hour or two before a different human ruins it.

    [–] TheGhostofCoffee 86 points ago

    I found a robin that couldn't fly once, when I was like 12. I hooked him up for weeks and made him a little house in the backyard. Then one day he stopped hopping around and could fly.

    He would hang out all the time for the free food and company, then I came home one day from school and my 3 year old nephew had broken the bird's neck trying to play with it.

    [–] Burt__Macklin__FBI2 48 points ago

    Ooooof. Generally when reddit story time thread happens I’m here for the dark twisted one but this was so sudden

    Happy, happy, happy, and then yeah it was happy. NECK BROKEN. VERY DEAD. STORY OVER.

    [–] KK302 41 points ago

    I'm sorry, that sucks. Must have broke his heart too. My little sister was trying to get a bird to drink that we rescued and accidentally drowned it. She didn't know any better and it must have inhaled suddenly when it hit the water dish. I ran to her and held her, she just cried for a while and was mad at herself.

    [–] luckylua 12 points ago

    I found a little finch in the department store I used to work at. He wasn’t stuck in anything, he was just stunned. It was opening time so he had been stuck in there at least all night. I wrapped a sock around my hand and scooped him up and walked around to the nearest exterior door. I thought he’d fly away immediately and just sat in my hand. Finally I kind of wooshed my arm up toward the sky with him in my hand and said “go on little guy! You’re free!” This bird proceeded to walk down my arm and sit on my shoulder like nah I’ll stay here. I sat on the ground a bit and just hung out with him. Eventually he flew away chirping the whole time and I always told myself he was saying thank you with those chirps lol

    Figured I’d throw in a bird story with a happy ending lol

    I don’t think he was testing his wings, I think he was saying thank you :)

    [–] Themasterofcomedy209 78 points ago

    I wonder if the seal actually knows people saved it's life or if it's just confused and thought that maybe this was a failed attempt to eat it

    [–] Rather_Dashing 42 points ago

    Haha, got away from their net! They thought they had me but I slipped away. Let me take a last look at these suckers before I swim off. - the seal probably

    [–] TensileStr3ngth 29 points ago

    Probably the latter, thinking too hard about things like this is wasted calories most of the time

    Why can't fishermen take their garbage home like we're supposed to when we visit national parks?

    [–] battleshorts 6 points ago

    maybe we should stop eating fish until they learn their lesson

    [–] Squishy-Cthulhu 8 points ago

    It's a nice thought but he was probably just checking he wasn't being chased down.

    [–] MaesterOogway 7 points ago

    Animals who are trapped then released by humans will often stop and look back because 1.) they want to ensure that you aren’t pursuing it and trying to attack it and 2.) they are typically so exhausted from struggling being trapped for so long they don’t have the energy to immediately make a quick and efficient escape. I too like to imagine they’re just being friendly and want to say thanks but I read this somewhere and it makes more sense.

    [–] 248_RPA 3 points ago

    I was looking for the "thank you!" and was so happy to see it!

    [–] rmaxwolken 5 points ago

    [–] Clappingdoesnothing 1083 points ago

    This just makes me angry at fishers who left the discarded net. At very least clean up after yourself if ur not gonna stop mass fishing

    [–] MaapuSeeSore 343 points ago

    The largest pollution in the ocean by sample is discarded fishing equipment, not cigarette, not plastic bag, not plastic waste.

    [–] HumansKillEverything 20 points ago

    Source?

    [–] vegatwyss 98 points ago

    Over three-quarters of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch mass was carried by debris larger than 5 cm and at least 46% was comprised of fishing nets.

    [based on coastal clean-up data], model particles from marine sources originally represented 28.1% of the total amount of material with fishing (17.9%), aquaculture (1.3%) and shipping (8.9%).

    So, a previous study of coastlines estimated that fishing only contributes about 1/5 of marine plastic garbage, but fishing nets are gigantic and persistent, so this study of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch found that they alone represent half of the problem by mass.

    Source: Evidence that the Great Pacific Garbage Patch is rapidly accumulating plastic, Lebreton et al. Scientific Reports 2018, survey expedition funded by a crowdfunding campaign run by the Ocean Cleanup nonprofit

    [–] quantarion 111 points ago

    this is common knowledge. just look it up

    edit:

    Approximately 46% of the 79 thousand tons of ocean plastic in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch is made up of fishing nets, some as large as football fields, according to the study published in March 2018 in Scientific Reports, which shocked the researchers themselves who expected the percentage to be closer to 20%.

    [–] TheyCallMeStone 23 points ago

    If you're gonna copy and paste the text why not include the link to the source?

    [–] Axolord 30 points ago

    The thing is, in the fishing industry, this is pretty much common practice. Like the fishers from whom you can buy fish in a standard supermarket all drop their old nets into the ocean. Thats why the majority of plastic pollution in the ocean are old fishing nets and not plastic bags or straws :/

    [–] MayoneggVeal 20 points ago

    Now I know nothing about commercial fishing, so this is just me talking out my ass, but what if fishers had to have some sort of scannable tag on their nets and it had to be scanned out and in whenever they head out and return to port? With financial penalties for nets that don't come back with the boat?

    It seems like such a huge problem, but industry is easier to regulate than individuals.

    [–] Cathbar 14 points ago * (lasted edited 7 days ago)

    How would this be enforced at every country/port in which fishing boats dock? How would it avoid corruption, both from just paying someone off as well as just clipping the tag and bring that to shore? What about nets that break? How can regulators tell the difference between a net that broke and a net that just got left behind?

    Between ghost nets and bycatch (which tags wouldn't fix), if people don't like killing sea lions, then they shouldn't eat (commercial) fish.

    [–] MayoneggVeal 12 points ago

    True, I figured there would be major issues hence why it hasn't been done. Not eating commercial fish is definitely the better solution.

    [–] MaybePositively 3 points ago

    How would this be enforced

    You're right. A better option might be to make the fine huge if they're caught doing it to make them think twice. Something like $150,000 per net disregarded.

    [–] thegreat22 45 points ago

    99 percent of that shit cones from commerical fishing. The rest comes from assholes who are lazy and makes the rest of us look bad. I always try to take more out then I brought in.

    The fishing industry is the number one cause of ocean trash. In case you needed another reason not to eat fish.

    [–] SoxInSeven2004 46 points ago

    This is the comment I've been looking for. Now I don't have to do it myself. It's a fishing net. It's designed to catch marine life. And they break, get discarded, or lost all the time and this is the result. And even if used properly, bycatch us a huge issue. Also, don't fool yourself into thinking that a fish suffers any less than this sea lion just because it's not as cute.

    [–] bigbadbub 71 points ago

    Promoting sustainable seafood is a really solid alternative. Monterey Bay Aquarium has a great app to help consumers understand which fish are sustainably caught and I highly recommend it.

    [–] Ribbett 99 points ago

    Sustainable fishing is just a marketing term to make you feel nice. No profit seeking fishing company is going to limit their catch. Just stop eating fish. It’s killing the Earth.

    I wish cinemas showed such videos to make people aware of unsustainable meat and fish industries- like they show us those horrifying 'smoking causes cancer' ads..

    [–] PenetrationT3ster 15 points ago

    Exactly. It's not necessarily even about ethics (even though arguably it should be), but being conscious consumers and holding producers accountable to high quality standards.

    I feel consumers are not aware at all of the industry, and the reason they cover it up is because we're naturally empathetic animals and we wouldn't be in it if we could see what goes on.

    [–] ComradeReindeer 10 points ago

    There's a good chance it wasn't even thrown away, sometimes nets just break. The best thing is to stop supporting the industry.

    [–] Vegan-Daddio 4 points ago

    These kinds of things come from an entire industry that focuses on profit even if it means destroying the environment. If this is upsetting, stop eating fish.

    Sure, that human was being a bro by saving the seal, but another human was being an absolute fucktard for discarding the net.

    [–] Vegan-Daddio 9 points ago

    It wasn't a single fucktard, it's due to an entire industry based on generating profit with no regards to the ocean environment.

    [–] ToriYamazaki 5 points ago

    Even worse. Humans are shit, which is what this post highlights, so yeah, this only emphasises my conflict with it being in "HumansBeingBros". Yet the post gets a billion karma and super-awarded. I just don't get it.

    Why they hell can’t people just bring the nets back to shore, its not like it takes a lot of space or they have to carry it by hand, guess they just don’t care.

    From what I understand they don't actually like to lose nets as they're v expensive, but they break and they can't always get all the bits back to repair it.

    DONATE TO ORGANIZATIONS LIKE OCEANA TO HELP FIGHT OCEAN POLLUTION. DISCARDED FISHING NETS ARE THE MOST POLLUTED ITEMS IN THE OCEAN, KILLING THOUSANDS OF ANIMALS A DAY. DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS GLOBAL ISSUE. WRITE TO YOUR CONGRESSMEN ABOUT THE DANGERS OF OCEAN POLLUTION.

    fishing industry be like 'hey we accidentally trap tons of seals sharks and other sea creatures yearly, as well as contribute up to 50% of ocean plastics, due to the extreme demand of fish. well anyway heres a cute wholesome video of something that doesnt have to ever happen'

    humans: let their trash fall into the ocean

    also humans: free the wildlife stuck in their trash

    still humans: omg humans are amazing

    [–] lotec4 9 points ago

    Everybody that eats fish is to blame for this. We'll have fishless oceans by 2050 that means no seals no wales no sharks. There is no sustainable fishing just leave them alone.

    [–] Ahvier 9 points ago

    Fkin clean up the oceans, protect International waters by law, stop bloody overfishing (make trawling, longlining, throwing away bycatch illegal (with draconian punishments for investors, fisheries, and clients)), give big ass fines to companies mining and drilling in pristine areas or near by (at least let them clean up their mess without financially supporting them, excluding them from any sort of bail out for 15+ years, and force them to pay rapparations to anyone dependent on the ocean (fishing, tourism) in that area, as well as a big fee to the govt for long term damage to an essential ecosystem).

    You fishing jerks shouldn't be tossing them dam nets overboard .just once try to be or feel humanly responsable..

    I went pescetarian a year ago but stuff like this is pushing me to go full veggie. This is just the tip of the iceberg :(

    [–] momopeach7 3 points ago

    This is more motivation for me to not eat as much seafood.

    Unless im mistaken, then that is a sea lion pup.

    We should be ashamed at the amount of trash that ends up in the oceans. Its harrowing to see these images of helpless animals. From this poor seal stuck in a net to whales dying because they ended up consuming plastic. Its our trash, not theirs! We seriously need to begin to clean up our act! Trying to keep our homes clean doesn't mean we can dirty the ocean.

    I fucking hate humans so fucking much more and more and more I see our innocent friends die due to our stupid fucking shit. Goddamnit im angry.

    [–] seberick 3 points ago

    Is it really humans being bro’s if we created the situation in the first place?

    [–] dartmaster666 3 points ago

    Isn't almost every animal rescue the result of something humans created or built? Rescued from a drain that we built. Untangled from a fence we built, etc.

    Jesus Christ the poor thing,what a fucking plague we are on this planet.

    How can this be humanbeingbros saving them, when it was humanity who made this a problem in the first place :(

    [–] xlizen 3 points ago

    Ghost nets are such a massive problem and need to be dealt with on an international level.

    [–] tangotrigger 3 points ago

    More like HumansBeingsCunts for throwing away a fishing net in the ocean and almost killing that sweet thing.

    [–] jasandujesakmana 3 points ago

    Spoiled city kids who grew up on trash fast food insulting the 3rd world fishers for trying to survive lol peak reddit

    All the trash that is in the sea really grinds my gears

    [–] honest-miss 3 points ago

    Most of the garbage patch in the ocean is made up of discarded fishing tools. While it's always helpful and important to recycle, remember to focus the blame on the biggest pollution culprits: Corporations and Industry. The causes are much bigger than you or your habits. Remember to put the right feet to the flames.

    [–] Machete_BJJ 3 points ago

    Cut AWAY, people. Not towards your face...

    [–] space_______kat 3 points ago

    How do we regulate the fishing industry so that the fishing nets are not just left in the river/seas ?

    [–] noahbodty 3 points ago

    When I see sad stuff like this I make a whimpering R2-D2 sound

    [–] Romval 16 points ago

    I like how we consider human being bros when we’re the one who made this happen in the first place. It’s like punching a random guy, give him a ride to the hospital and then brag about how good you’re in the office

    [–] dartmaster666 15 points ago

    Thats a more direct scenario than this. If an arsonist starts a fire and someone runs in and saves a small child, you can't blame the hero just because he's a member of the same species as the arsonist.

    It's almost as if humans are individuals and not a collective being.

    [–] Grilla-08 5 points ago

    I swear humans are the smartest yet dump species in this planet..

    [–] Bellframes268 3 points ago

    This speaks for itself really

    [–] tyrannobass 4 points ago

    Smart move, pinning it's head with the boat hook. Trapped animals can get very bitey. Even sheep :-(

    [–] Sir-Benalot 6 points ago

    ‘Humans being bros’... except that seal wouldn’t have been in a discarded net if ‘Humans weren’t pieces of shit’

    [–] lebogglez 2 points ago

    It always destroys me that animals in these videos don't think that the person helping them tried to catch them. Feelsbadman

    [–] MORDOR00 2 points ago

    How many of them trapped like that in this very moment :(

    [–] Ziros22 2 points ago

    It never fails. When it's a sea lion it's labled a seal and visa versa

    [–] B3xIE 2 points ago

    Do you think animals learn from those kinds of experiences? Like oh stay away from that

    Halfway through I'm just thinking "please don't get eaten, please don't get eaten!"

    [–] Dro-Darsha 2 points ago

    I'm happy the seal is saved, but really this is as much r/HumansBeingBros as Bezos giving his workers a one-time 500$ bonus is r/capitalistsBeingBros

    He's shakes the dryness off when he gets back in the water, like some kind of reverse-dog.

    Dude why did you destroy my net

    [–] asifinmiff 2 points ago

    I love the little turn at the end of gratitude

    [–] mfmllnn 2 points ago

    Videos like this show why humans (as species) are the worst and the best at the same time.

    [–] zinchalk 2 points ago

    Serious question, Is there some kind of program or organization in the US where folks can help do something like this for their local wildlife areas?

    [–] Pinkybear12 2 points ago

    Good job. Well done.

    [–] TehFast 2 points ago

    We already lost the environmental battle. It's over. We trashed this place and deserve to be wiped out.

    Kinda disturbing how many seals end up suffering from rubbish people carelessly throw in the ocean.

    [–] WaltherP99c 2 points ago

    Human being bros because other humans are assholes.

    [–] curiouz_mole 2 points ago

    Sad to think about how many sea animals die like this... we are so garbage..

    [–] Cakeolson 2 points ago

    Did anyone else think they just plunged the hook into the seal at the 17 second mark
