Popular California Beach Closed Due to Aggressive Sharks

Wagswoofs – Beachgoers in California reported witnessing “aggressive shark activity” on Sunday afternoon, which resulted in the closure of a portion of the beach. The closure will remain in effect until Tuesday.

On Sunday, Sunset Beach in Huntington Beach had to be closed down at 4:30 p.m. due to reports of a stranded young whale. Earlier that day, at around 3:45 p.m., sightings of shark and whale activity had been reported to Lifeguard Tower 22.

According to a statement posted on X (formerly Twitter), bite marks were observed on the whale while it was still alive. Beachgoers in the vicinity reported seeing aggressive shark activity and splashing just before the whale washed ashore.

According to KNBC, The Pacific Marine Mammal Center rescued the whale on Sunday night, but unfortunately, the injuries sustained by the whale were severe. Consequently, the center decided to euthanize the whale to prevent it from further suffering.

The authorities have closed off a one-mile stretch of ocean and shoreline in both directions from the site of the reported incident. This closure will remain in effect until approximately 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday.
