A nice victory round the La Jolla seals. Why can't this be an election day referendum proposal? Unlike the booze ban (which I'm yes on), the seals just occupy a small swatch of the ~70 mile SD coastline; leave em alone, and they are a tourist draw and local fave for the majority.

and the trouble making drunks only affected a small swath of the ~70 mile coast too. About a 3 block length of sand around Reed St, so why push for an alcohol ban over an area that was never a problem? Seems like another ban supporting double standard to me. Also the fact that we could drink alcohol responsibly on the beach was a tourist draw too. I've seen several tourists say they wont come back to SD b/c of the ban and beach attendance is way down this year as is revenue. Maybe you should think about that before you vote....

And as for the topic, I am glad the seals can stay. Once again, such a small swath of sand and there are plenty of places to enjoy the beach right next to the Childrens Pool. There is a rock right there called "Seal Rock" and this is there natural habitat. It really annoys me all the anti-seal sentiment present here, some people in SD seem against the seals just b/c who supports them. There are some spiteful haters in this world....

The seals will go back to living on the rock 100 feet North just like they have for 100s of years.

The seals is the first place I take people who come to visit me. I feel bad that they won't be there anymore. There are plenty of other beaches for people. They are so happy there. Everyday so many people go there just tto see them. It will be a shame that they are gone.

Until recently they used the big rocks that are just North of the pool. That is a lot more natural habitat than taking a picture with some guy trying to touch one of them. May as well be at Sea World.

You will still be able to see them no problem just not 2 feet away.

For what it's worth, I like the seals where they are. They aren't hurting anyone. Leave them alone and let them enjoy their peace.

I am glad that the seals can stay. The seals should be the least of many local worries. Why not fight for something with substance like fighting hunger in America, or becoming a positive role model for neighborhood children?
I for one enjoy heading to LaJolla and taking in the beautiful views, having a nice lunch and walking down to Mothers Beach to see everyone enjoying the seals.....People don't understand the big economic impact they have on the community of LaJolla, believe me it is a positive one$$$....Let them be!
