Mayor denies emergency request for seal barrier

Posted: Updated:

LA JOLLA, Calif. (CBS 8) - Mayor Jerry Sanders has denied an emergency request for a permanent rope barrier to protect the seals at the Children's Pool in La Jolla.

The request was made by the San Diego City Council. Sanders said he denied it because he didn't see why it shouldn't go through normal approval procedures. That could take up to six months.

A legal battle over whether the seals should be protected has been ongoing for several years.
