The young girl that was dragged into the water by a sea lion in British Columbia has reportedly contracted a hazardous infection, called seal finger!

The infection is caused by bacteria from a seal’s mouth infecting an open cut.

If untreated the infection can cause massive swelling and can lead to the loss of fingers or limbs.

A spokesperson for the Vancouver Aquarium confirmed that the young girl is being treated.
