Stingrays

Re "Stingrays' Points Well-Taken," June 1: I was appalled when I read the article about the effort to reduce stingray stings on the beach by removing the rays' stingers. As a scuba diver for the last seven years, I have great respect for the beautiful animals that live in our oceans. I have been diving with stingrays, sharks, dolphins and the like. I always enter the water knowing that I am invading their space and that I take a risk every time I dive. But it is worth it to me to see these amazing animals in their natural habitat.

Unusually warm ocean water off Southern California has prompted a summer stingray invasion, especially along Orange County beaches, where swimmers and surfers in recent days have reported being stung by rays dug into the sand in shallow water. At Bolsa Chica State Beach, at least nine young pupils at Corky Carroll's Surf School in Huntington Beach hobbled out of the water Thursday morning in need of first aid after feeling the touch of a ray's barbed tail.
