Several dead leopard sharks found washed ashore on a beach in California, USA

Several dead leopard sharks washed ashore in Ocean Beach after the rain last week.
 
An NBC 7 viewer snapped pictures of the sharks at dog beach.
 
According to Andrew P. Nosal, Ph.D, a Visiting Assistant Researcher at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, the deaths may be related to the water quality but he could not say for sure.
 
Nosal said the area where the sharks were found was located near the mouth of the San Diego River. After the recent rainfall, the water quality could have caused the leopard sharks to die and wash ashore.
 
He added that this occurs every now and then in several locations across the state.
