MSP AIR WING TAKES NEW ENGLAND AQUARIUM STAFF ON SHARK PATROL
Yesterday, MSP Air Wing members Sergeant Gregg Spooner and Trooper Joshua Pacheco conducted an aerial shark patrol accompanied by John Chisholm of the New England Aquarium. While scanning the waters off Cape Cod, the flight crew spotted this shark approximately 150 feet from the shoreline off Race Point Beach in Provincetown. The shark was in the water near a small group of seals that were gathered tightly together near the surf on the beach. Mr. Chisholm noted to the Air Wing members in flight, that the seals will huddle together when they sense a shark in the water for their protection.
The Massachusetts State Police will continue to conduct regular aerial patrols in areas where sharks are known to be active. When swimming on Cape Cod avoid areas where seals are present. Don’t isolate yourself. Swim, paddle, kayak, and surf in groups. Follow all signage and flag warnings at beaches and instructions of the lifeguards.
