We’re in Florida, and coming to your beautiful city next month.
We can’t wait to kill baby sea lions on the beach-
Huh? You mean, only Famous Astronauts get to do that?

Dear Mr. (Inkstone),
Thank you for your e-mail expressing concern over the incident involving the dog and the seal in Laguna Beach.
Our review of the incident showed that there was no violation of the applicable municipal leash law. As such, no citations were issued in conjunction with the incident.
We have referred this case to the National Marine Fisheries Service for investigation of whether there were any violations of the Marine Mammal Protection Act. That agency has jurisdiction over violations of the Act.
Please let me know if I may be of further assistance.

The beach is clearly marked that all dogs must be leashed.

Hey officer doofus.
Would you be so charitable if the dog had mauled a child?
This is a marine sanctuary and they violated the law.
