WATCH: Shark Sighting Off Massachusetts Coast

Massachusetts State Police have released chopper footage of a shark in the water off the coast of Wellfleet.

A massive shark appeared off the Massachusetts coastline Friday — and the Massachusetts State Police caught it on video.

The 25-foot gentle giant was a basking shark, which is normally not harmful to humans and only eats tiny fish, according to State Police.

The State Police Air Wing launched from the Plymouth Air Base at the request of the Marine Fisheries scientist after the shark sighting was reported.
