Aquarium Puts Great White Shark On Display – What Timing!

Great White Shark

The Monterey Bay Aquarium announced Tuesday that it placed a young white shark on public display, and a spokesman said it was “an unfortunate coincidence” the news came the same day a surfer was mauled by a white shark off Marina State Beach.

“We make our decision on when we move the animals, depending on how the animals are doing,” aquarium spokesman Ken Peterson said. “The timing is unfortunate.”

The young shark was brought to Monterey 24 days after it was caught accidentally in commercial fishing gear off Southern California.
