Wildwood Crest Public Works Superintendent Joe Bond said Monday that his department removed a sand tiger shark from a borough beach last week.

The dead shark washed up on the beach Thursday morning, but Bond said it appeared to have been dead for some time, possibly after being hit by a boat.

The Public Works Department picked up the carcass and disposed of it in the trash.
