On Tuesday, Feb. 22, a day that will live in infamy, my wife and I watched helplessly as hundreds of violators of the marine preserve plucked hundreds of fish from the ocean a short distance from the beach.
When they were sated they came ashore and rested on the rocks enjoying the early morning sun. Where were the California Fish and Game officers and the City Council to prevent this travesty? The occasional fisherman on shore could not inflict such slaughter in a 1,000 years.
The City Council needs to call an emergency meeting to ensure that the pelicans respect all regulations. As a last resort they could always be neutered.
