Great White Shark Found in Depoe Bay, Oregon

From the Oregon.gov site:
According to OSP Sergeant Todd Thompson, on August 8, 2009 at 8:00 p.m. an OSP Fish & Wildlife Division trooper was working on the Depoe Bay docks when a shark was brought in by a recreational tuna boat. The trooper contacted the boat occupants after they had already gutted the shark. They indicated the shark had become entangled in their crab gear and was pulled to the surface when they pulled in a crab pot.


Under investigation; it's illegal to "take or possess" a great white.
