Shark Scare Over For New York Waters

Westhampton Beach, Suffolk County NY — A group of sharks have been sighted in the waters off the coast of West Hampton — basking sharks, a ‘most likely harmless’ kind of shark.

Basking sharks are the second largest shark next to the whale shark, and usually show up early in the summer to feed. These sharks also have no teeth, and feed most similarly to whales.

Beaches were closed to swimmers due to the fact that even though a basking shark won’t eat a human, it could still knock you out with its large body.

However, since the report was issued, it has now been stated by NY officials that the sharks have left and the ‘coast is clear.’

The outcry should go further than importation and should be directed at the fact that the animals in question were on their way to slaughter in the first place.
