Struggling Shark Pulled Ashore by Swimmer in Kill Devil Hills

Have you ever wondered what is the best way to draw a crowd? I think I have the answer, drag a shark to shore. WITN reports that a 5 1/2 foot sand tiger shark was pulled ashore by a swimmer in Kill Devil Hills earlier today. Over a 100 onlookers gathered around to see the shark.

Apparently the shark was in severe distress and was spotted rolling around in the ocean surf. A swimmer grabbed the shark by the tail and pulled it to shore where it was turned over to Animal Control for removal.

Ocean Rescue believes that the shark had been caught offshore and the line cut.
