Shark washes ashore in Nova Scotia
Tuesday, October 31, 2017, 2:18 PM - A 2.3-metre shark has washed ashore in Nova Scotia after getting stuck in shallow water at Inverness Beach over the weekend.
Three men had attempted to rescue a shark, but were unsuccessful.
Officials from the Department of Fisheries and Oceans say it is a porbeagle shark, a common species in waters near Nova Scotia.
They are most often seen between may and November.
The shark has attracted its share of attention. Local photographer Sean O'Connell told the Canadian Press there's been a "steady stream" of people stopping by to look at it.
"It's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see a shark up that close," he added.
