One Dangerous US Beach Is Called The 'Great White Capital.' Here's Why
By Mina Elwell and John Bills


In recent years, the number of great white sharks swimming around Cape Cod, Massachusetts, has soared. The increase means a greater danger for people swimming in the waters.
The lack of sharks in the region was due to the aggressive overhunting of seals in Massachusetts, and now, things are returning to the way they once were.
With the high numbers of great white sharks being reported, some tourists will take their vacation elsewhere. However, others will take this as a chance to see great white sharks.
An aquatic biologist told The Patriot Ledger, "Don't swim with the bait." If you see seals or birds going for fish, avoid swimming there because it's a hunting ground for sharks.
