A Shark Panic in New Jersey - From Over 90 Years Ago

We may have missed 'Shark Week' on the Discovery Channel but we'll make up for it with a terrifying New Jersey story. This gruesome slice of state history appeared on weirdnj.com. It all started in Beach Haven in July of 1916.

Debbie Galant is with New Jersey News Commons at Montclair State University. She speaks with New Jersey Public Radio's David Furst about a true story that MAY have inspired author Peter Benchley to write Jaws.
