Salmon Shark Swims Ashore in Oceano

Beach goers got a lot more excitement this weekend when they found a baby shark washed ashore.

Santa Barbara marine mammal expert Peter Howorth said this is a juvenile salmon shark.

This animal was found Sunday just after 4:30 p.m. at the Oceano Dunes State Beach.

Viewer Lindsey Watters sent in this video of people trying to get the shark back into the water.

But it keeps swimming back; still no word on whether they ever got the shark to stay in the water.

Salmon sharks are related to great whites, but are not known for attacking people.
