National Seashore Releases Official Warning About Great White Sharks

shark – Cape Cod National Seashore Superintendent George Price reminds visitors and residents that we share the National Seashore with native wildlife. While it is rare for a great white shark to bite a human, it did occur in Truro in 2012.

*Swim close to shore, where your feet can touch the bottom.
*Swim, paddle, kayak, and surf in groups.
*Do not swim alone in the ocean at dawn or dusk. Avoid isolation.
*Limit splashing and do not wear shiny jewelry.
*Keep pets leashed. Inquisitive dogs can startle resting seals, resulting in seal bites or scratches to you or your pet.
*Follow instructions of lifeguards. Become familiar with the beach flag warning system. Take time to read signage at the beaches.

Listen, I know many of you are probably saying “Enough with the sharks Hippie, we get it”, but my hands are tied here. How could I not mention this? Look at that list of tips to avoid being eaten, it is insane. It basically says you should only swim at high noon, spray painted white, in 2 inches of water, and keep your dog in your basement. We are officially at def con 9 here folks.

Let me summarize that list of warnings for you. It can easily be broken down into one simple step to avoid being eaten…


P.S. Anyone know a good pool guy?
