Update: Sharks on Florida Shores Near Beaches Cnn Video

Sharks are moving closer to Florida beaches as they attempt to look for food and escape an oily death…

Update (6/23/10) CNN has a video about this that I wanted to share with everyone that was interested in this story. I’m sorry to say that the situation is much worse than when I wrote this article only 2 days ago. Here is the video:



Due to the catastrophic BP Gulf oil spill, sharks are starting to move closer to shores in Florida to look for food.

Last month, it started with a tiger shark. The shark entered the shores of southwestern Florida, near beaches. It was disoriented and weak. No one could say for sure if the tiger shark had approached the shore because of the oil spill, because oil was not visible in that area yet. Now, a month later, it is getting much worse.

For the past few weeks, over 2 dozen shark sightings have occurred in areas they would not normally be. It is possible that the sharks are aware of the impending doom to their habitat and have escaped the oil spill, to cleaner waters. But that is the best case scenario and not the end of the story. Whale sharks have also been spotted and their situation is critical. They need to feed in the areas that are in oil spill area. Even though they seem to be moving away from the danger zone, they have also moved away from their food source. The sharks that have been spotted are all exhibiting the signs of weakness and disorientation, like the first tiger shark that was spotted.
