Officers removed three dead sharks from the shore there Thursday. Each one was about 2-feet long.

Officials say the animals will be taken to a lab where they'll determine what kind of sharks they are and how old they were. It's unknown exactly how long the carcasses had been left there.

Recreational fishing regulations allow a catch limit of just one shark per person per day.

Officials are seeking any information about the incident. People can call the fish kill hotline at 800-636-0511.
