Just a couple hours after KRON4 received a photo of what appeared to be a leopard shark pretty near the Alameda shore, local police tweeted what you should do if you see one. 

“Have you seen leopard sharks washed up on Crown Memorial State Beach recently? If so, Do NOT attempt to rescue or collect the shark,” the Alameda Police Department tweeted Thursday. 

Instead if you see one, you’re advised to call the Crab Cove Visitor Center at 510-544-3187 to report stranded sharks, rays, or other fish.
