Sharks attack seal off Nantucket; Cape Cod beaches close to swimming after great white shark sightings


A shiver of sharks went to town on a seal off of Nantucket on Tuesday, as Cape Cod beaches shut down to swimming after many great whites were spotted close to shore.

The group of sharks attacking the seal was caught on camera in Sconset.

“That’s so many!” said a viewer of the shark feast, as gasps were heard in the background. “That’s so much blood!”

“These are NOT white sharks for those that keep asking,” tweeted MA Sharks, which is run by local shark expert John Chisholm, who confirms shark sightings for the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy’s Sharktivity app. “Most likely sandbar sharks which are abundant in that area.”

Chisholm earlier in the day had shared a video of a sandbar shark off Nantucket.

“Yes, there are more than just white sharks in our waters,” he said. “Sandbars (aka brown sharks) can be found during the summer mainly south of the Cape, especially on ACK & MV.”
