Jaws on a Beach
A quick camping trip to Seacliff Beach State Park turned out to be rather exciting. Our campsite neighbors spotted a buoy slowly moving in the water just yards offshore. It turned out to be a great white shark (most likely a juvenile) tangled in a piece of crab net and buoy rope. They used 4 fishing lures to snag the buoy and tease it into shore. Two "Dads" cut the rope and netting off. It took time to get the shark turned around. It was obviously distressed and its large muscular body was hard to maneuver. Avoiding the teeth was probably a concern. The shark swam away. Warning, one image shows some nasty rope burns on its underside. Hopefully it will live to bite another day.
