The phenomenon began in early May when scientists at the shark cage diving company Marine Dynamics spotted a pair of killer whales cruising along the southwestern coast of South Africa. Days later, great white shark carcasses began washing up in their wake. “From a scientific perspective in South Africa, it’s absolutely unprecedented,” said Alison Towner, white shark biologist at the Dyer Island Conservation Trust in Gansbaai, South Africa. The five great white sharks that washed up on the beach ranged from 9 to 16 feet
Anthony Bourdain is publicly processing the Mario Batali allegations with empathy, grief and a self-described guilty conscience. "It's Batali. And it's bad," Bourdain tweeted on Monday morning as the news broke online.
