Seal carcass a reminder of Cape Cod great white shark presence

Boston’s Fox 25 reports that a seal carcass with wounds consistent to a bite from a white shark (Carcharodon carcharias) washed ashore near Monomoy Island. Division of Marine Fisheries researcher Dr. Greg Skomal believes the bite was caused by a white shark in the 14′-16′ range.

A ban on swimming is still in effect indefinitely at Chatham’s North Beach, North Beach Island, and South Beach due to recent white shark sightings in the area.
