A research showed that the increased numbers of seals living in the area have increased the number of shark sightings.

Seals are the preferred preys of great white sharks.

The 1972 Marine Mammal Protection Act banned the catching of marine mammals that includes dolphins, seals, and whales.

The act is the reason why a huge seal population can be witnessed in Cape Cod.

Earlier, the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy shared a video of a shark attack on Twitter.

Authorities in Massachusetts are currently placing warning signs on beaches that say “People have been seriously injured and killed by white sharks along this coastline.”
