Dead shark found in Milton
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.
