Video captured a person swimming in the water near the juvenile shark. This sighting comes a month after a swimmer was bit by a shark near the pier.
Aerial video showed four or five objects resembling sharks in the water south of the pier. According to KTLA, lifeguards monitored the sharks for about an hour, but never cleared the water.
LA County Lifeguards tweeted, "It's very common to see juvenile white sharks off the southern CA coast. The juvenile sharks we have observed have been very docile."
The juvenile sharks have become a common appearance over the past several years, and the young sharks are non-aggressive unless provoked, according to the report.
