Shark Feeding Frenzy Filmed In Outer Banks [Video]

An incredible shark feeding frenzy was caught on tape this week along North Carolina’s Outer Banks.

Brian Recker writes on YouTube that the video was taken at the Cape Lookout National Seashore. The video shows more than 100 sharks feeding on a school of blue fish.

Despite the violent nature of the feeding frenzy, Recker insists that the waters around North Carolina are safe for swimming.

Recker writes: “On Thursday, October 8 at around noon, while at a retreat at Cape Lookout National Seashore off the Crystal Coast of North Carolina, the leaders of One Harbor Church witnessed a shark feeding frenzy. The men were out fishing for the evening’s dinner when they stumbled across more than 100 sharks attacking a school of blue fish. As seagulls and pelicans joined in on the meal, the men began to cast into the surf, catching fish without the use of bait. For more than five minutes, the sharks were observed swimming in and out of the surf, some of which became beached in the fury. Donnie Griggs, the cameraman who captured the footage, is an avid waterman who spearfishes, dives, swims and surfs at Cape Lookout often. We want it to be clear that Cape Lookout and the surrounding beaches of Eastern North Carolina are extremely safe for swimming. The presence of these sharks and large schools of fish is actually a sign of a very healthy ecosystem.”

Check out the shark feeding frenzy below. It’s a pretty amazing sight and, despite Recker’s reassurances, does not look like the most pleasant place for a swim.
