Bostonherald – Nine great white sharks — up to 18 feet long — are being tracked by state wildlife experts who said today the killers are within striking distance of the Bay State coast. One of the sharks was responsible for an attack yesterday on a Truro man, who was identified today by hospital officials as Christopher Myers. Eyewitnesses yesterday on Ballston Beach in Truro said they saw a dorsal fin break near where the man was swimming. He then struggled to shore with bites on his legs, according to witnesses.State officials at an afternoon press conference said it is up to towns to decide if they should close beaches due to shark sightings. They added an increase in the seal population is drawing the sharks closer to shore.
