VIDEO: Seal Slaps Kayaker With Octopus


 A viral video shows a kayaker in the South Pacific getting slapped by a seal with a live octopus.  The video was taken last week during a kayaking trip off the coast of New Zealand, and shows kayaker Kyle Mulinder paddling in the ocean when a seal rises to the surface with an octopus in its mouth.  In an instant, the seal whips the octopus around and slaps Mulinder in the face with a tentacle.  The kayaker was stunned, but unhurt.  A biology professor at the University of Auckland says the seal was likely just trying to eat the octopus, and the kayaker was in his way.
