Two fishermen got an up-close look at a great white shark Tuesday when their boat got close to a whale carcass.
Matty Riley and Ken Roth were out lobstering in Cape Cod Bay around 11 a.m. when the shark approached their vessel. A video captured by Riley shows the close encounter.
The shark, seemingly uninterested in the vessel after examining it, turns around and swims toward the dead humpback whale.
