This graphic video captured a great white shark devouring a seal off Cape Cod

Scientists with the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy captured graphic footage of a great white shark feasting on a seal off the coast of Chatham.

In the video posted Monday, the shark can be seen from the research boat — and from a spotter plane high above — devouring its prey as blood billows in the clear ocean water.

“Welcome to ‘Shark City’!” the video concludes.

The sighting follows a New England summer filled with shark encounters. In August, beachgoers witnessed a shark attacking a seal within feet of Nauset Beach. A few days later, a shark bit a paddle board off Marconi Beach.
