Governor on shark bites: Don’t swim near fishing areas
RALEIGH, NC (WTVD) — Governor Pat McCrory says state officials are looking at what can be done after the seventh shark attack along the North Carolina coast this year.
McCrory says safety officials are still trying to find patterns in the series of shark attacks on the state’s coast in order to keep the key tourism region safe for visitors.
“I have talked to several state legislators where the initial bites occurred we are talking about potential local restrictions,” said McCrory. “If there is needs to be state involvement, we will do everything we can to support local authorities.”
