Advocates want beach closed during pupping season

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Members of the Seal Conservancy of San Diego are urging the California Coastal Commission to close the Children's Pool beach in La Jolla during harbor seal pupping season.

The organization wants beach access cut off between December 15 and May 15 of each year. Currently a rope barrier is used to separate people from seals, but seal advocates say that doesn't stop people from harassing them.

The coastal commission will take up the issue at its hearing Thursday.
