Gawd, don't believe that for a minute, they are where they food is, thats true, but a main source of food, especially for pregnant females is seals & sea lion and you know where they are, hell there's a haul out just south of Solana beach.

So Ca coast is a birthing area, and I would bet this was a female, possible pregnant, and this poor soul looked like natural prey and being the last in a group, he was probably mistaken for injuried prey

This person has to be one of the most unlucky people alive, because I'll bet that won't happen again in decades.
I agree, but I wouldn't bet on not happening again in the next 10 yrs

Freedom comes when youíre ready to sail away. True freedom comes when you donít have to return

Cut off from the land that bore us, betrayed by the land we find, where the brightest have gone before us and the dullest remain behind, .......but stand to your glasses, steady,.......tis all we have left to prize, raise a cup to the dead already, hurrah for the next that dies
