But I thought sharks ate seals, especially young ones.
For people not familiar with this area, Bailey Island is in Casco Bay just north of Portland, ME.
This is 2 hours NORTH of Boston. This is way out of the Gulf Stream.
As the Great White shark population grows on the Atlantic east coast stories like this will become more common.
As articles and news sources state this is the FIRST fatal shark attack in the history of the state of Maine.
As Capt Tom will attest, the growth in population of Atlantic Grey seals has brought the White Sharks first up to Cape Cod and now the gulf of ME.
If these people would social distance and wear masks more often, maybe this wouldnt happen!
I like that the sharks are skipping right by New Hampshire on their way to Maine from Mass.
Janet Mills can solve this problem easy enough.
Are these sharks quarantining for 14 days?
So maybe getting more lobsters out of the water and giving them to me will help keep the Sharks away. That said if it is a mako shark reel him in and club him and I will definitely eat that shark!
Now Maine DOESN’T want tourists? /sarc
Restoring the seal population has consequences.
The headline is a trompe-l’il for me. I mentally inserted an X in the middle of Maine and suddenly I had more sharks visiting Maxine Waters. Imagine my disappointment.
‘...more sharks are visiting Maine waters’
put an x in Maine they’d be visiting Maxine Waters, which would be great news...
Hmmmm ... maybe AntiFa should have a big beach party in Maine....
Protecting seals has led to an increase in their numbers...more Purina Jaws Chow!
