Boater captures video of a shark feasting on a seal by Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge

“I’d love to see Jaws just come out of nowhere.”

While on a recent Cape Cod fishing trip, a group witnessed quite the scene by Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge: A great white shark feasting on a seal, and brushing by their vessel in the process, reports The Boston Globe.

At first, Stephen Hrusovsky’s iPhone camera is just focused on a half-eaten seal in the water, when a person says, “I’d love to see Jaws just come out of nowhere.”

Not before long, a shark is sinking its teeth into the animal.

The video, posted by the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy on Facebook Wednesday, was taken by the 28-year-old New York City resident on Saturday, the nonprofit’s president, Cynthia Wigren, told the Globe.

The rarity of witnessing a shark mid-predation has made the recent videos captured off Cape Cod this season, including the drone footage off Nauset Beach, all the more exciting, Wigren said.
