Beachgoers Rescue Stranded Great White Shark

(Video Link)

If I saw a great white shark trapped on the beach, I might have several responses, but none of them would involve picking it up and dragging back into the water. Fortunately for this shark, more daring and caring people were present at the beach on Chatham, Massachusetts on Monday. They found a 7 and ½ foot juvenile shark that had beached and was unable to return to the waters off Cape Cod.

Harbormaster Stuart Smith took over the rescue effort upon his arrival. He and his colleagues tied a rope to the shark and pulled it into the water. It was still sluggish, so they towed it out into deeper water. Greg Skomal, a biologist, put a tracking device on the shark before the rescuers released it. Animal wildlife officials will use it to monitor the shark's location.
