Yesterday a three foot long baby Salmon shark washed on shore near Tillicum Oregon.  The shark was dead and not a threat to the public.

The Hatfield Marine Center sent a professor from OSU to pick up the shark carcass, though a large animal had eaten part of the shark’s head overnight.  The professor from OSU thought it possible that it was a cougar that had eaten part of the shark.

The shark was a baby and it is thought that the shark died of cold water shock.

All of this was reported about on Facebook to the Yachats Friends Facebook group.
