By Kathrene Herndon


Warning signs are up again in Morro Bay after another shark sighting was reported Friday morning.

State Parks officials say the shark was reported by surfers at about 9:25 a.m. approximately 100 yards from Morro Strand State Beach.

They say the surfers reported the shark, which was 5-10 feet from them, appeared to be a great white and estimate it to be 10-feet long.

Warning signs have been posted along the beach from 24th Street in Cayucos to Morro Rock. They will remain up for 72 hours unless there is another sighting. The beach remains open.

State Parks officials say other shark sightings have been reported recently in the area.

Kayaker Bitten by Shark in Malibu, Airlifted From Beach
A video still of Saturday's Malibu shark victim 

The victim was a 25-year-old male and was taken to a hospital in Thousand Oaks.

A kayaker in Malibu was bitten by a shark on Saturday, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

The attack occurred near Deer Creek Beach, and the victim was a 25-year-old male who was about a mile offshore, according to Ventura County Fire Capt. Ron Oatman.

Oatman told THR that the victim, who was with another kayaker at the time, was dangling his feet in the water when the bite occurred. The shark's bite caused a "pretty good lacertion to the top of the person's foot," and then the shark moved on, Oatman added.

The victim was transported by a nearby fishing boat to the beach before being taken to Los Robles Hospital in Thousand Oaks for treatment.

The shark was a 10-foot hammerhead, and Malibu-area beaches remained open following the attack, according to CBS2.
