Shark Sighting at South Beach

Shark at South BeachSouth Beach, OR -- On August 29, 2009 Greg Niles of OceanPulseSurf.com reported the following;

"At 8 AM I was surfing South Beach, Oregon when I witnessed an attack on a Sea Lion. Other Sea Lions were seen jumping out of the water and swimming as fast as possible just prior to the one taken out. It happened some 200 feet from my location. The shark came up from underneath and had one strike then disappeared with the Sea Lion. I would estimate the shark to be 16 - 18 feet long. We have observed a high number of partially eaten Seals/Sea Lions in and out of the water in the last few weeks along with many Great White sightings. The sky was overcast with the air temperature 60 degrees Fahrenheit and the water 56 degrees Fahrenheit."
