Great White Sightings Boost Town's Tourism

(Chatham, MA) -- Tourists are taking to the seaside Massachusetts town of Chatham in hopes of catching a glimpse of a great white shark. Town officials tell the "New York Times" things are a lot different these days, with people being far more fascinated by sharks than they are afraid. The local shops are taking advantage of that situation, selling everything from shark-shaped baby bootees to Christmas tree ornaments. Sightings have become more common because of a boon in the gray seal population, a favorite meal among sharks.
