Dead shark found in Milton
Someone has a big fish tale to tell.
A dead six- to eight-foot blue shark was found in the woods of Milton — more than a 30-mile drive from the Atlantic Ocean, according to police.
“This is the first shark we've had in town,” Milton police Lt. Richard Krauss said Saturday night.
A neighbor “could smell the rotting animal” on Teneriffe Road Thursday night, Krauss said.
“We don't have any clue why someone would catch a shark and go through all that work to waste it and dump it in the woods,” he said. Police believe someone dragged the shark into the woods.
A person would need at least a saltwater fish license in New Hampshire, he said.
Authorities aren't removing the animal, with Krauss noting that bears and other wildlife like to prowl the area.
“We're just letting nature take its course,” he said.
