Shark Snags Seal Off Massachusetts Coast: VIDEO

GreatWhiteSeal

A great white shark made a great big breakfast of a seal off the coast of Monomoy Island in Chatham, Massachusetts yesterday.

Spend a bit of your lunch hour watching the shark get his fill AFTER THE JUMP.

  1. I can't figure out why you have this video posted on Towleroad.

  2. I'd rather not watch this. Why are you posting this? It's disgusting.

  3. It's a dead seal... not what I was expecting, but cool nonetheless.

  4. For the millionth time Towleroad isn't purely "gay" news. Start your own site if ya don't like it.

  5. What's amusing is if this spectacle was seen from a tourist boat, there'd be some nut jumping in "I want to swim with it!". Recall the nut at a zoo on YouTube who just had to get close to polar bears.

  6. I'll join the chorus that is questioning why this is posted on Towleroad. While I recognize there has been an ever-changing pension for postin news that has nothing to do with the LGBT community, I question why articles/subjects such as the record number of LGBT delegates to the Democratic convention gets a line mention in a news summary story, and this gets it's own post.

  8. Anyone joining the sniveling chorus of "why is this posted on Towleroad" should sing their tune elsewhere. And if you would "rather not watch this" then it is really simple, DON'T. Sheesh you whiners.

  9. I'll join the chorus that is asking for more shark videos, particularly any from Tampa.

  10. Really people!! If you don't want to watch the video just don't watch it! They can post whatever they want. I love shark videos, post more!

  11. I love this site, and appreciate the variety of things that you post. Keep up the great work!!

  12. Andy, thank you for the variety of things you post on your blog. Many of us come here for coverage of LGTBQ life and issues and politics, but it's nice to have other things as well! Please keep posting a variety of things. For the record, I won't watch the shark/seal video because I don't want to see what happens.

  13. It is pretty simple. If you do not like what is posted, don't read it, click it or watch it.

    But please stop bitching about it. Start your own blog if you are unhappy with this content.

  14. I'd like to join in a chorus of "for Andy's a jolly good fellow", and follow up with a verse or two of 99 bottles of beer on the wall.

    Have a great weekend.

  15. WTF is it shark week already!!??? Yeah shark porn on Towleroad! What a waste of space.

  16. I second Furey's post. Yeah, we get that it's 'not only gay news' on here, but that's why it was created. The general quality of the news on here has become increasingly pedestrian as new writers are brought on board; Andy Towle has all my respect, but that hasn't extended to the Us magazine quality reporters that overshadow the relevant and more important stories that are being short-changed as a result.

    Complaining is not bitching, but complaining about bitching is.

    Sean buddy your affection is showing.

  18. Jesus Christ. It's a link to a video. It's not taking up literal space that would have been used for something else. If you don't want to watch a shark video, scroll down beyond it.

  19. Not all news here has to be gay-related. But this video is, at best, pointless because this sort of thing happens CONSTANTLY in the wild. It's really nothing remarkable. It's not a once-in-a-lifetime encounter or outcome. It's a seal getting eaten. So gay-related or not, it's odd and confusing to see it here.

  20. What a bunch of whiners! Sheesh!

    Great vid - thanks Andy and Crew!

  22. YES to variety!
    It only takes a second to scroll down to the next post! just an FYI

  23. Would a benevolent diety have created an earth in which most living things have bring pain and death to other living things in order to survive?

    Posted by: andrew | Aug 26, 2012 10:52:12 PM


  24. Read the Bible lately? - He's not benevolent.
