Great White Sharks Are Invading Cape Cod

In just the past couple months, there have been over 150 sightings around the coastal spot.Over the past week, beaches in Cape Cod were shut down for three days due to 20 great whites being in the area.Massachusetts Department of Fish and Game's Gregory Skomal says a large number of seals in the area are attracting the sharks.He adds that higher water temperatures are also bringing in great whites. We've seen more white sharks this past July, the last month, than we did last year at this time, Marine Biologist Gregory Skomal, via MSN. In 2019, the state's Fish and Game Department has so far tagged 15 sharks in order to track their movements.
