Seriously.....

You think Wildlife Comission would even come out for this? They don't handle marine species. Nor do they have the officers or manpower to set up a perimeter. Nor is one even necessarily stationed nearby at nights.

Get real, the economy is in the crapper. Overtime is non-existent for any state agency. And check this... sharks are not covered at all by NC Wildlife. Alligators sure. Sharks no.

Had it been a whale UNCW's Marine Program or the Aquarium would have helped. They were both called. Both said the same thing, there is no known program to help beached sharks. It will most likely die before a single responder could get there.

The only reason this one survived as long as it did is because the Sand Tiger Shark can gulp air to increase its buoyancy. Without constant movement, it will die regardless fast.
