Harmless or careless?
There’s a furor brewing in Truro, where some Cape Cod residents aren’t pleased with the town’s depiction of a smiling shark on this year’s beach sticker, arguing that the image downplays the recent fears of sharks swimming along the shore during the summer months.
According to the Cape Cod Times, the sticker won unanimous approval from the town beach commission.
Kelly Clark, director of the town's recreation and beach department, told the Times that she was concerned about the repercussions of taking the Cape’s shark issues too lightly, but was essentially told to “lighten up.”
Truro boasts four beaches, all which require a parking sticker, which can be purchased $15 a season for residents.
