Sharks Spotted Off of Two South Jersey Shore Towns Monday Afternoon
Mary Lee, the 16-foot-long great white shark who was tracked off the coast of New Jersey, made lots of headlines back in May. Now, shark sightings Monday afternoon off of two South Jersey shore towns are making waves.
According to WCAU-TV, there were two shark sightings right off the coast Monday afternoon. The first happened around 1:00 off of the Gladstone Avenue beach in Margate. Lifeguards told the station the shark appeared to be chasing a school of fish and people were allowed to return to the water about an hour later.
The second shark sighting happened a little later Monday afternoon off of Avalon where a shark, about 4 feet long, was spotted in the water.
No one was harmed during Monday's shark sightings.
