CAPE LOOKOUT, N.C. — A recently filmed video captured a shark feeding frenzy along the North Carolina Outer Banks.

According to Brian Recker’s YouTube post, the video was filmed at Cape Lookout National Seashore and shows more than 100 sharks attacking a school of blue fish.

“For more than five minutes, the sharks were observed swimming in and out of the surf, some of which became beached in the fury,” Recker wrote.

Recker added a disclaimer that Donnie Griggs, the cameraman who captured the footage, is an avid waterman who spearfishes, dives, swims and surfs at Cape Lookout often.

Recker assured viewers that “Cape Lookout and the surrounding beaches of Eastern North Carolina are extremely safe for swimming.”
