SHARK, SEAL CHASE

A seal escapes a shark attack by leaping out of the water off Monomoy Monday.  The video was captured by Dr. Greg Skomal during the twice-weekly population study being conducted with funding from the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy.  While this seal escaped, the shark later predated another one nearby. Skomal tagged four sharks -- the most in a single day -- on Monday.

Exploring Monomoy
CHATHAM --- Even before their school systems merged, Chatham and Harwich always had a lot in common. After all, you can't get into Chatham without passing through Harwich.
