Two Days After New Years. My Family Went Down To La Jolla Shores To Go Check Out The Waves Crashing Against The Children's Pool Wall.

Eventually, We Got Bored And Started To Walk Around A Little Bit, And We Saw Something Horrible Going On.

Tourists Had Climbed Over A Barrier, And Were Taking Pictures With The Seals, The Problem Was That The People Were Usually From 5 Inches To 3 Feet Away From The Seals.

I Was Surprised At The People. Some Of The Parents Were Letting Small Children Just Run Around On The Rocks And Literally Pet Seals.When The Seals Would Start Getting Angry And Bark Or Something, The People Would Just Laugh. The Were Just Laughing At Animal Abuse.Those Seals Are Wild Animals And Deserve Respect.

Animal Activists Have Tried To Stop The Problem But The Tourists Just Aren't Getting The Message.

Here Are Some Quotes To Prove My Point.

"People are not getting it.  Tourists think because they paid money to get here they have the right to grapple with the animals.  There are perfectly good laws on the books and people are ignoring them and the government is not enforcing the laws," said Hahn.

A "no-selfie" sign was recently posted at South Casa Beach.  It was posted to remind visitors that sea lions and the seals are protected by federal law, monitored by park rangers, and it's illegal to disturb them.

There Are Sites That Publicly DIsplay The Marine Animal Protection Act (MMPA) 

You Read It On Your Own Here (http://www.marinemammalcenter.org/what-we-do/rescue/marine-mammal-protection-act.html

"The Marine Mammal Protection Act still plays a critical role in the survival of marine mammals and the health of our ocean ecosystem. Our ocean is in trouble and marine mammals are facing new threats ranging from warming ocean temperatures to ocean trash and plastic pollution to depletion of fish stocks – just to name a few. The Marine Mammal Protection Act helps protect our most vulnerable creatures and The Marine Mammal Center will continue our work to ensure their survival.

The Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA) was passed October 21, 1972, to maintain the health and stability of the marine ecosystem. Marine mammals were in danger of diminishing, some to the point of extinction, as a result of human activities like hunting and fishing. The MMPA protects all marine mammals, including cetaceans (whales, dolphins and porpoises), pinnipeds (seals and sea lions), sirenians (manatees and dugongs), sea otters and polar bears within the waters of the United States"
