More Great White Sharks Seen Off Southern California Beaches

More Great White Sharks Seen Off Southern California Beaches

Interestingly, another warning went out in Long Beach later that day, according to CNN, saying another group of at least 10 great whites were spotted.

The waters near this California beach are not closed, but they are now on a 48-hour advisory for what has been coined as "aggressive" shark behavior.

Last month, 33-year-old Leeanne Ericson lost part of her leg to a shark attack off San Onofre State Beach.

Video from the Orange County Sheriff's Department helicopter showed the cluster Wednesday of the exotic, potentially deadly sea animals.

Just minutes into their helicopter flight, they had spotted three great whites swimming in shallow water less than 50 feet from the shoreline. It's also popular among sharks as a location to rear their young.

Down by the water, "shark advisory" signs warn beach goers to enter at their own risk. Lowe runs the shark lab at California State University, Long Beach. "The sharks are as close as the surf line", Deputy Stockbridge broadcasts.




The sighting occurred while shark advisories were in place in the region.

"The shark activity was sighted by a surfer, who had a very close encounter with a shark", Camp Pendleton spokeswoman Lt. Abigail Peterson told the San Diego Union Tribune.

"I don't think we should be beach people anymore".

But when it zooms out, the camera reveals the bustling coast of a Southern California beach.

'They didn't migrate south in the winter, which they usually did, ' Lowe said. "We'd spot them periodically, and towards the end of the summer they disappeared".

"Sharks live in the ocean - anytime you venture out in the ocean, you have to know other creatures live in the ocean", he said.
