San Diego's Coastal Clash
"To their fans, the 200 harbor seals who live off the shore of San Diego's wealthiest enclave are lovable creatures... To others, they're thieves who've robbed kids of a place to swim.
Environmentalists last week filed a lawsuit demanding that the city reverse its recent decision to open the beach to the flippered and flipperless alike. Meanwhile, a cofounder of the Greenpeace Foundation reportedly threatened to launch a global tourist boycott of San Diego if the seals don't get their beach back."
