Several large ocean mammals have washed up on the Oregon coast and appear to be victims of a Great White shark even worse possibly several Great Whites.

In at least one telling of the story, a local surfer is out looking for waves in the ocean off Fort Stevens State Park around this same time several years ago.

He's resting on his board when he feels a massive jolt. He looks back. A chunk of his board, a bit of tail and fin, is missing. He glances to the side just in time to see a large great white shark roll by him. It seems to look at him - he can see one dark eye. And then it's gone.


In recent weeks, however, four sea animals have been found dead from large shark bites on Clatsop County beaches.
