Two 18-Foot Sharks Enjoy West Hamptons Beach


It’s shaping up to be quite the summer. It’s only June 1, and it “feels like” 89 degrees. Additionally, sharks have arrived in the Hamptons, closing West Hampton’s Dunes beach down for people yesterday after two of them — 18-foot long, mind you — were spotted swimming near the shore. Also on the beach was the remains of a dead seal, which may have “attracted” the sharks. Hamptons-goers were not thrilled. “It was pretty close to the beach, and I’m certainly happy I wasn’t in the water at that time,” one person told CBS 2. But as a local resident explained, sharks do live in the ocean, so you kind of have to expect to see them every once in a while. It’s their beach, too! Stop being so selfish, humans. [CBS]
