Shark Washes Up On St. Augustine Beach

The body of a sand tiger shark washed ashore on St. Augustine Beach Tuesday morning.

The 8'4'' foot sand tiger shark is a female, and it drew a crowd of curious onlookers to the beach. This kind of shark is in these waters in the winter and spring.

On site, a wildlife team took samples for testing and found a hook deep in her throat. It's not clear if the hook was the cause of death.

The shark had been tagged, right by it’s dorsal fin.
