A camera mounted on the stern of a boat moored at Alcatraz Island in the San Francisco Bay captured an amazing sight a few days ago—a great white shark attacking a seal just tens of feet from tourists.
The action lasts for less than five seconds, but it’s still breathtaking. The shark breaches the water and can clearly be seen holding a seal between its jaws. The water near the shark turns red as the attack continues underwater.
The original footage can be seen below:
Edit 10-18-2015: It appears the original videos have been made private on YouTube. The clip from a local news station now embedded below shows the attack.
