Fox Providence’s The Rhode Show talk about recent unconfirmed shark sightings which close Westport’s Horseneck Beach. There are plenty of opinions going around on both sides of the argument The Rhode Show’s The Buzz ranging from the “Jaws scarred me for life” mentality to the “sharks are always in the ocean” mentality.
Horseneck Beach has been closed twice this week after shark sightings were reported. On Monday a shark was spotted by a fisherman. On Wednesday lifeguards spotted what “appeared to be a shark” less than 100m from shore. A decision will be made this morning on whether to re-open the beach after police and “shark experts” inspect the waters around the beach via helicopter.
