Cape Cod shark safety flier sparks concerns – News Local Massachusetts – Boston.com.

This cracks me to no end as life imitates art once again. I can just see Chief Brody arguing with the president of the Amity Chamber of Commerce under a billboard with a swimmer being chased by a shark, “But chief, closing the beaches will be bad for business.”

It’s a matter of time before someone gets attacked by a shark in Cape Cod waters. It’s happened recently and it will happen again. Some kayaker, surfer, paddle boarder, or hapless swimmer is going to be mistaken for a seal and get chomped. Not telling the rubes on vacation that the Cape is rapidly becoming a Great White all you can eat buffet is not a way to keep the tourism industry on its feet.
