Swimmers are being advised to stay out of the water at two Whatcom County beaches.

New tests show fecal bacteria levels exceed federal standards at Wildcat Cove in Larrabee State Park and Little Squalicum Beach.
   
State ecology officials are not sure what's causing the high bacteria levels, but they believe it may be linked to animal waste.
