Great White Sharks return to Cape Cod

They're back.......It's summer on Cape Cod and they have returned.....NO, not the tourists.

The Great White Sharks....

They know there are seals in the waters off Chatham and seals are their favorite food.  Of course, this makes others who want to be in the water nervous as you could be mistaken for a nice fat seal by Mr. Sharky......

The scene in Jaws where Hoope tries to explain this to Mayor Vaughn is a classic.....

Hooper:Mr. Vaughn, what we are dealing with here is a perfect engine, an eating machine. It's really a miracle of evolution. All this machine does is swim and eat and make little sharks, and that's all. Now, why don't you take a long, close look at this sign.
[refers to the graffitied billboard]
 
Hooper:Those proportions are correct.
 
Mayor Vaughn:Love to prove that, wouldn't ya? Get your name into the National Geographic.
 
I hope the Sharks don't find the wrong "seal" when they go looking for a quick snack.....

I wonder if these sharks showing up are hurting tourism. My friend was looking at Cape Cod vacation rentals and is now having second thoughts (doesn't like sharks).
