its a salmon shark... they get up to 9 ft. and 500 pounds. lots of them in close on oregon coast mostly near river outlets .find them guite a bit around p.c....they migrate down from alaska to breed in oregons warmer water. dont attack humans much cuz they feed on fish. can swim up to 50 nots...one of the fastest fish in the ocean and can get airborn when attacking salmon...great tasting meat !!! dont pet them !!!

Salmon shark, in case anyone was wondering. Those things have been washing up on shore quite a bit in recent years.

It is always sad to see such a majestic animal in a dead state.
