State's high court declines seal case

December 01, 2007|Tony Perry

The Supreme Court of California this week refused to get involved in a 15-year-old political and legal fight over the presence of harbor seals on the beach at the Children's Pool in La Jolla.

The high court declined consideration of an appeal of a lower court ruling that the city should clean the beach even if it means chasing the seals out to sea. Seal feces have presented a health hazard on the beach.

The city is working on a plan to dredge the beach to create a greater tidal flow.
