Surfers scrambled to the shore after an estimated 15-foot nice white shark attacked a seal in Cape Cod, Massachusetts over the weekend.
MASSIVE GREAT WHITE SHARK FILMED JUST FEET AWAY FROM OBLIVIOUS PADDLE BOARDER
A video posted by Ken Martin, of Boston, exhibits the moments simply after the shark attacked the seal. Lifeguards may be seen ushering the previous few surfers inland, whereas a separate video posted by Martin exhibits the bloody carcass of a seal floating within the water. The latter had almost 100,000 views as of Wednesday afternoon.
The shark allegedly “took out a seal in the midst of 20 surfers” simply 30 ft from the shore, Martin described on Twitter, including in a separate tweet that the shark disappeared shortly after the occasion.
Martin mentioned “chaos” ensued for a couple of minutes after the assault till everybody on the seashore was accounted for.
“My daughter had a seal swim up on her about 10 days in the past actual sandbar and had no concept till folks within the seashore began to yell to her to maneuver. Must keep away from the seals and all must be okay,” Martin suggested one Twitter person.
GREAT WHITE SHARK CAUGHT IN RHODE ISLAND WATERS
Others who frequent the seashore agreed.
“Rule #1: Don’t swim or surf close to the seals by the inlet at Nauset,” one Twitter person commented.
“We’ve been vacationing & going to Nauset for 15-20 years (earlier than and after Children lol) and annually looks like seals are inching nearer to the shore, which brings the sharks nearer,” one other added.
“Right … keep away from the seals,” Martin reiterated.
The assault comes shortly after a fantastic white was caught in Rhode Island waters on Sunday.
