How Did a 6-8 Foot Shark Carcass End up in the New Hampshire Woods?


MILTON, N.H. — “(I’ve seen) garbage here and there but nothing like this that’s for sure,” said Lloyd Ellis, whose brother discovered a shark in the woods of Milton.

“He happened to smell something that didn’t smell right, like a dead animal or something, and he came across it Thursday night,” said EIlis.

The shark was found discarded here on some private property just off of Rural Tenerriffe Road, not far from busy Route 125 and the Spaulding Turnpike.

“I can only think that either someone didn’t have a license, because you have to have a license to fish the ocean, and was going to bring it home and someone said, ‘Hey dude, you need a license or something like that.’

Panicking, they probably said, ‘Well, I guess we’ve got to get rid of the evidence,'” said Ellis.
