Stinson Beach in California has been closed to swimming for at least 5 days after a great white shark that was at least 10-feet long was spotted on Monday.
Alexandra Picavet, spokeswoman for Golden Gate National Recreation Area, told KQED that the shark was seen by lifeguards, a fishing vessel and people on the beach.
The shark was likely drawn into the area by a juvenile fin whale that died after it became stranded on the beach.
Reports of the shark attacking a seal near the beach haven’t been confirmed.
Stinson Beach is on Marin County, about 2.5 miles east-southeast of Bolinas and the 35 minute drive from Golden Gate Bridge.
