Shark Devours Sea Lion off Pacifica
The sighting of the possible Great White tearing a hapless mammal to shreds prompted police to post signs on the beach warning would-be swimmers to exercise good judgment before running into the water.
Despite the unusual spectacle of a shark feeding in full public view, surfers soon returned to the waters.
Perhaps it wasn't as carefree a move as you'd think. Unlike the movies, Great White Sharks eat only occasionally -- every few days or weeks. Not that this is much solace to the Pacifica sea lion.
