A great white shark got beached while it was trying to catch seagulls in Cape Cod on Monday. And state officials HAD to save it, because it’s federally protected. So they tied a rope to its tail, pulled it into the water, and led it back out to sea. Luckily it didn’t BITE them during any of that.


A juvenile great white beached itself while trying to catch seagulls off Chatham, Massachusetts. Thanks to the harbor master and beach-goers, this shark was saved. CHECK OUT MY OTHER SHARK VIDEO: For any licensing requests please contact
