(From abclocal.go.com) Capitola, CA – The Capitola Wharf is closed to fishing after a wave of pelican injuries. All human fishermen and women were kicked off the Capitola Wharf, at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday morning to keep the pelicans safe. Several pelicans were bloodied and maimed after getting caught up in the fishing lines this week. The problem forced the Seacliff Pier in Aptos to close to fishing on Tuesday.
