Video: Shark Attacks Seal at Truro Beach

shark-attackTRURO – A beachgoer in Truro captured a dramatic video of a shark attacking and eating a seal in shallow water at High Head Beach over the weekend.

In the video, the shark can be seen swimming around the seal just feet from shore. The wounded seal is then seen trying to get out of the water to escape before collapsing on the beach.

The shark nearly stranded itself on the beach in the process, but was able to get back into deeper water. Researchers with the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy believe this is how some sharks have ended up stranded on local beaches.

Caution: this video contains some graphic images.
