Beach goers attempt to save a great white shark

I posted this yesterday on the Tracking sharks Facebook page, which if you haven’t liked it yet, be sure to do so ;0), and thought I would share it on the site.

The 14-foot shark washed up on Whitecrest Beach in Wellfleet,Massachusetts on Sunday.

Over 100 people attempted to rescue the stranded male,by digging a ditch and dragging it out to sea using a rope attached to the sharks tail fin.

Unfortunately, the shark died sometime during the ordeal, probably due to lack of oxygenated water and its massive body weight.

Back in July a similar incident occurred with the great white making it safely back to the water.

In that case, the shark was tagged and has been seen/pinged several times.
