Sea lions chase away California beachgoers

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.

The sea lions waddled after a fleeing crowd before swimming away in the ocean. Nobody was hurt. Experts are using this moment to remind people that sea lions are adorable but insist on a right to sleep. If you want to take pictures, stay 50 feet away.
