According to CBS News, a “pack” of sharks were spotted about 15 feet off the shore of West Hampton Dunes on Tuesday, prompting officials to close parts of Cupsogue Beach to swimmers. They were reportedly around 18-feet long and were still in the water as of last evening. Authorities are investigating whether the sharks were responsible for a seal murder after a decapitated carcass washed up nearby.
