Are Increased Shark Sightings On The Cape Impacting Tourism?10:03


On Tuesday and Wednesday, according to the app Sharktivity, there have been at least seven great white shark sightings off the coast of Cape Cod. Last summer, we saw two attacks, including one that led to the tragic death of a 26-year-old man.

How are the increased shark sightings, and last summer's lethal attack, impacting Cape Cod tourism and business?
