Shark sightings reported off La Jolla Shores

LA JOLLA — At least two reports of shark sightings off of La Jolla Shores over the weekend prompted lifeguards to alert beachgoers in the area on Aug. 16.
The shark warning has since been lifted.
According to the 760 KFMB radio website, on Aug. 15 a kayaker reported seeing a shark two miles off the coast of La Jolla Shores that could have been eight to 10 feet long. Later that day, La Jolla lifeguards reported seeing an 18- to 24-inch dorsal fin heading toward the beach, according to lifeguard Chief Rick Wurts.
There has not been a fatal shark attack in the area since the death of David Martin in Solana Beach in April 2008.

    Children’s pool, populated by seal lions will only attract more.
    When a swimmer or diver gets bit or worse, who will stand up and file suit against the bleating heart animal lovers in la jolla?
