Salmon shark beaches on Pacific City shore

Animals

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A juvenile salmon shark washed ashore in Pacific City over the weekend.

Viewer Jill Boyer sent KOIN 6 News the photo and a video of the shark. The Oregon Coast Aquarium says people often mix salmon sharks up with great whites.

They said salmon sharks do not typically attack humans and there have been no known incidents with them in Oregon.

Strandings are very common this time of year.
