Some visitors to Nauset Beach on Wednesday got to take in more than just a view of the surf — a shark catching a seal for a snack.
The Atlantic White Shark Conservancy shared a video of the predation just off the Orleans beach.
“A number of predations have been witnessed recently off Callanan’s Pass (north of the public beach),” the conservancy wrote. “We remind Cape residents and visitors that August-October are the peak months of white shark activity off our coast. Please adhere to all signage and flag warnings at beaches and follow instructions of the lifeguards.”
According to Sharktivity, the conservancy’s free app that provides information on white shark sightings and movements, there have been three confirmed shark sightings in the area in the last 48 hours. According to The Boston Globe, Nauset Beach has seen 12 beach closures so far in August due to shark sightings.
