LAGUNA BEACH, Calif. — Amateur video shows former astronaut Mark Kelly, the husband of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, yanking away a dog that clamped down on a baby sea lion at a California beach.

Laguna Beach police tell the Los Angeles Times that the attack happened near an exclusive resort Saturday.

In the video obtained by the Times and KABC-TV, Kelly’s screaming daughter tries to pull her dog from the sea lion as two other women help.

Kelly steps in and wrests the animal free. It later died.

A spokeswoman for Kelly’s political committee says the family crated the dog and then talked to officers. Police say the dog broke from its leash, and no laws were broken.
