San Diego's La Jolla Cove stinks, and the culprit is sea lion poop.

That's according to a lawsuit filed last week by a hotel and restaurant. U-T San Diego reports the suit says the stench is driving away customers and poses a public health risk. It claims the city hasn't acted promptly to deal with the problem.

Alex Roth, a spokesman for interim Mayor Todd Gloria, says the city is working toward a solution.

He says the smell 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.
