Frozen, Dead Shark Discovered On Cape Cod Beach During Recent Arctic Blast

The Northeast United States experienced perilously low temperatures and frigid winds over the weekend. Many cities, such as Boston, canceled school. New York issued a “code blue alert” and opened warming centers.
During all this, a photographer made an interesting and unique winter discovery when out for a walk. She found a frozen shark carcass and posted about the experience on Instagram. Amie Medeiros was strolling along Cold Storage Beach in Dennis, Massachusetts, at 2:30 p.m. when she stumbled upon the deceased creature.

Amie captioned her photo of the frozen shark body with a poem by Haruki Murakami: "Ice contains no future, just the past, sealed away. As if they're alive, everything in the world is sealed up inside, clear and distinct. Ice can preserve all kinds of things that way - cleanly, clearly. That's the essence of ice, the role it plays.”

She commented that this was “not what I was expecting to find on my frozen winter adventure.”

The dead shark appears to be a porbeagle shark. It did not die from the cold but from an injury. Amie’s photo shows wounds above its fins.

In warmer weather, sharks are a normal sight at Cape Cod beaches. This summer there were many sightings of the creatures while people took advantage of the hot weather and frolicked in the ocean on vacation. Some shark sightings caused the beaches to be closed to the public.
