    Define "harmed". Big difference between "lost an appendage", "got gashed by teeth", "scrapes and bruises", and just plain "Dang that smarts!" All are "harmed" to an extent.

    Just because a deer runs off into the forest after you hit it with your car does not mean it is "unharmed".

    Humpback whales do not eat mammals and they also do not have teeth, they are filter feeders and would have sensed such a large living animal in its mouth and spit it out.

    The fate of the sea lion captured in this photo isn't clear, but Dekker said he's "almost 100 percent confident" that it escaped unharmed.

    Exactly. Uneaten and unharmed are two very different things.

    look at his furry face of terror. I sense harm. Even if not physically harmed, he will face a lifetime of aquatic anxiety and isolation from the other sea lions who will keep saying "dammit, Carl, for the last time, you were NOT almost swallowed by a humpback whale. They only eat krill. Stop blaming your lack of mating on made up crap!"

    I knew a woman who was almost 100% certain that she wasn't pregnant. The baby weighed 9 pounds.

    "Stop blaming your lack of mating on made up crap!"

    Not to mention the constant ridicule from soiling himself...or herself, even worse.
