Sharks Boosting Cape Tourism

Great White SharkSharks have appeared at a good time off the coast of Chatham. Summer's winding down, but the prospect of seeing a shark off Chatham (or Orleans, Eastham, or Wellfleet) has kept the beaches busy with sightseers. There aren't many swimmers, however. The Cape Cod Times ran an extensive story about the sharks and their diet of seals ... Here. The article points out that large numbers of seals, and their predators, have the potential to alter the habits of many vacation goers and effect local businesses.
