There have been numerous shark sightings on both coasts this summer. Here in SoCal, a baby great white was pulled from the water by excited fishermen a couple weeks ago before aquarium officials released it back to the water. On the East Coast, there have been a number of reports about sharks looming near the shores at Cape Cod, and amateur video has captured images of sharks munching on seals and stalking kayakers.

More sightings forced the closure of several beaches off of Cape Cod during the busy holiday week, almost echoing the theme of a certain summer blockbuster from so long ago.
