Beaches Reopen After Shark Bites Seal in Half Off Cape Cod

Two beaches on Cape Cod have reopened to swimmers Friday after a shark was seen attacking a seal just offshore Thursday.

Chatham officials closed down Lighthouse Beach and Andrew Hardings Beach on Thursday after a great white shark was spotted inside the harbor near Lighthouse Beach.

The Atlantic White Shark Conservancy confirmed that the great white shark bit the seal around 3:15 p.m.

The shark was one of about 10 great whites spotted off the Cape on Thursday.
