Sharks dying in San Francisco Bay; cause yet to be determined | Bay City News | Local | San Francisco Examiner
Sharks are dying in San Francisco Bay, with volunteers having rescued and removed about a dozen dead and dying leopard sharks in small waterways in Redwood City over the past few days in what is rapidly becoming a common occurrence, an expert said.
Redwood City resident Catherine Greer and her 13-year-old son, Lorenzo, were the first to discover the dying sharks at a lagoon near Redwood Shores off Radio Road earlier this week.
Greer, an avid fisher, said what she saw upset her. "It looked like they were trying to beach themselves," she said.
