The Sharks of Jersey…

– – This is “Shark Week” on The Discovery Channel, and it appears that sharks are staging their own commemorations off the New Jersey coast…

…during the month of July alone, three shark sightings have occurred off the Jersey coast, one at Ocean Beach and two at South Seaside Park Beach.  This past Saturday at Seaside Heights, N.J. a young blue shark swam toward the shoreline before turning around and heading back for deeper water…atypical behavior for the species.

There have been no injuries so far, but shark sightings have led to beach closings in New Jersey and along the Atlantic coast this summer (theme from Jaws plays)…

    I wonder if they might be commemorating the 93rd anniversary of the so-called Matawan Massacre?

    You know; the 1917 shark attacks that indirectly inspired Peter Benchley?
