It’s shark season — and at least one is feeding near Cape coast

Atlantic White Shark Conservancy

Researchers on Monday apparently spotted a white shark chowing down off the coast of Cape Cod.

Photographs of the shark feeding, which were posted to the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy’s Facebook page, showed the predator with an apparent gray seal in its mouth, according to the group.

Another photo seems to show a shark circling a pool of blood in the water.

Conservancy representatives wrote that the “white shark was approximately 11 feet in length and spotted off Monomoy.”

They also said the underwater footage is being reviewed by the Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries to see if officials can ID the shark.
