People or seals?


Seals are cute, adorable creatures that cause many problems. The seals at The Children’s Pool may look innocent, but they are actually creating a significant amount of trouble. The seals are affecting our city’s economy. They’re eating fish that fishermen are trying to catch to feed themselves and others. These creatures are also polluting waters along La Jolla’s coastline from WindanSea all the way to La Jolla Shores. They are causing La Jollans and tourists to get sick. Their feces are spoiling our local waters.

And let’s not forget what feed on seals ... sharks! The seals at The Children’s Pool could attract sharks into our coastal waters.

So who would you rather see go? People or the seals?
