A dead hammerhead shark washed ashore at Kailua Beach on Tuesday morning.

Beachgoers spotted the 8-foot shark shortly before noon. State Department of Land and Natural Resources workers were called to remove the shark and take it to the city landfill in Nanakuli for disposal.

It's unclear what caused the animal's death, but it did have a bite mark in its tail.
