The Raleigh News & Observer reports that the cows were returned to their native stomping grounds on Friday after a two-day operation. Officials think the stranded cows swam up to 5 miles (8 kilometers) during the September storm before being found near Cape Lookout this month.

Experts puzzled as 10-foot great white shark stays a month in one spot off East Coast

  Experts puzzled as 10-foot great white shark stays a month in one spot off East Coast CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Great white sharks are known for racing past the Mid-Atlantic states to get someplace else, so experts pay attention in rare cases when one not only stops, but stays put. That's happening now along the Virginia-North Carolina border with a 10-foot, 3-inch male tracked by OCEARCH. "It's interesting watching white shark Shaw since unlike other sharks on the Tracker, he has been hanging out off the Virginia coast for over a month,” OCEARCH posted Tuesday on Facebook.“The other sharks breezed past, only making a quick stop on their way south. What do you suppose he likes so much there?”OCEARCH offered no ideas in the post.

She tells the Cape Cod Times that a man had spotted the 12- foot -long shark on Sunday while walking on Nauset Beach in Orleans. Wigren says the incident marks the year’s first shark stranding on Cape Cod . Three sharks were stranded last year.

“Cause of death unknown,” the post said. “The Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries has been notified.”

Porbeagles are a warm-blooded coastal species of shark known to grow up to nearly 7 feet in length and live nearly 50 years, according to Oceana.org. However, the largest on record was nearly 12 feet, the organization says.

The photo does not show any wounds on the shark, though its open mouth appears to be circled in a reddish color.

Geovani Alves of Framingham, Massachusetts, was the first to report the shark, which he saw washing toward shore about 11:30 a.m. Sunday, The Cape Cod Times reports.

Alves, who was paragliding in the area, said he tried to force “the shark back into the water, but the surf washed it back onto the beach,” the newspaper reported.
