Chris Myers was body-surfing off Cape Cod when he was bit by a shark, fortunately surviving the attack. Now wildlife officials are sending air patrols to track at least nine great white sharks that are apparently spending their summer in Cape Cod.
According to George Burgess, a shark researcher and curator of the International Shark Attack File, we may not have seen the worst yet. “Unless there is a huge modification in human behavior,” said Burgess, “you can expect more attacks over time. It’s something we can predict with some certainty unless people decide not to go in the water. We are not going to eliminate the situation.”
