Harbor Seals

— From member station KPBS in San Diego, Erik Anderson reports that a southern California beach has been overrun by harbor seals. They're allowing onlookers to get within five or six feet of them. The solitary animals usually keep their distance from humans, but are attracted to this protected cove. The trouble is that the seals' waste is making the water unsafe for swimmers.
