Sea lions are stinking up San Diego's La Jolla Cove, according to a lawsuit filed last week by a hotel and restaurant.

The sea lions' stench is driving away customers and poses a public health risk, according to the lawsuit, U-T San Diego reports. It claims the city hasn't acted promptly to deal with the problem, according to The Associated Press.

Alex Roth, a spokesman for interim Mayor Todd Gloria, says the city is working to solve the sea lion stench problem.

He says the stench is probably more pungent recently because the sea lions have been snacking on anchovies.

Last year, businesses complained that guano from pelicans, gulls, and other birds was raising a stink. The city eventually hired a company to spray a bacterial solution to dissolve the waste.
