Nine-foot long great white shark washes ashore


A great white shark that washed up on a beach in Santa Cruz County Sunday will get a necropsy this week, according to the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.

The shark was found on a beach near Aptos Sunday morning, according to Peter Tira, a spokesman for the department. The dead shark was male and about nine feet long, Tira said.

Pathologists from the department will perform a necropsy in hopes of finding out what killed the shark, which has been removed from the beach and taken to a laboratory, Tira said.
