DELRAY BEACH — A large hammerhead shark was found dead and removed from the shoreline near Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach on Monday morning, according to a resident who captured photos and videos of the beached shark.

Alex Yarnall, a Delray Beach resident, found the hammerhead on the shore at sunrise. He guessed it was at least 10 feet long.

“I go every morning to the beach for meditation, for a swim, for a run,” Yarnall said. In the past he’s seen other beached sea life, but never a shark, he added.

“I got down there and there she was,” he said.

It’s unclear how the shark was beached.

“I didn’t see any hooks or damage around the mouth,” Yarnall said.

The city of Delray Beach arranged for the shark’s removal on Monday, according to WPTV.

Check out Yarnall’s video of the beached shark:
