SAN DIEGO (AP) - The San Diego City Council has approved a
permanent rope barrier separating people from harbor seals at Children's Pool in La Jolla.
The council approved the permanent barrier late Monday on a 6-2 vote.
The council also directed the city attorney's office to draft an ordinance prohibiting beach access during seal pupping season from Dec. 15 to May 15.
The rope barrier had been in place only during pupping season, but when it was removed over the weekend, some people were seen taunting the seals, prompting the city to consider making it permanent.
The cove, created by a seawall in 1931 and donated to the state, was used as a children's pool until the seals moved in during the 1990s.
