A Beach Infested With Sharks Doesn't Make for a Fun Beach Walk

By Casey Chan on at

Well, I know where my nightmare exists in real life: Cape Lookout National Seashore off the coast of North Carolina. Hundreds of sharks were seen right on the beach, swimming in and out of the waves and flapping and attacking around and hunting a school of blue fish. It's a terrifying sight to see.

On Thursday, October 9 at around noon, while at a retreat at Cape Lookout National Seashore off the coast of North Carolina, the leaders of One Harbor Church witnessed a shark feeding frenzy. The men were out fishing for the evening's dinner when they stumbled across more than 100 sharks attacking a school of blue fish. As seagulls and pelicans joined in on the meal, the men began to cast into the surf, catching fish without the use of bait. For more than five minutes, the sharks were observed swimming in and out of the surf, some of which became beached in the fury. Donnie Griggs, the cameraman who captured the footage, is an avid waterman who spearfishes, dives, swims and surfs at Cape Lookout often. We want it to be clear that Cape Lookout and the surrounding beaches of Eastern North Carolina are extremely safe for swimming. The presence of these sharks and large schools of fish is actually a sign of a very healthy ecosystem.

I mean, the video is just crazy. At first I thought it was just birds hunting the fish (which is already a freaky sight) but then when you look closer, the sharks reveal themselves and well, I'm glad beach season is over.
