Times__Earth: At the Florida Museum of Natural History, which maintains a global database of shark attacks, Gavin Naylor said he began fielding inquiries about a possible rise in shark attacks. 🗣 "If you live in Long Island, it looks bad," he said https://t.co/vvkJPXABD9

Well, when their food population (seals) increases, it should not be a surprise there's more of them in the area.
