Shark at Nantucket seashore noticed devouring seal near shore: ‘Beachgoers should never swim near seals’


Nantucket beachgoers acquired a front-row seat to a terrific white shark devouring a seal near shore over the weekend, as swimmers have been informed to get out of the water.

Blood was noticed within the water off Nice Level whereas the shark feasted on the seal. A number of shark sightings have been reported on Sunday off Nice Level, which is situated on the northern tip of Nantucket.

“Out of an abundance of caution, we closed down swimming Sunday afternoon,” a spokesperson for The Trustees of Reservations, a conservation and preservation group, stated in a press release.

“While shark attacks are rare, we advise visitors to please obey beach closures following shark sightings,” the Trustees spokesperson added. “If the beach is open for swimming, beachgoers should never swim near seals, never swim alone, limit their splashing, and avoid murky or low-visibility water.”

The seashores have been by no means closed, as swimmers have been requested to go away the water for an hour or two.
