Another shark sighting in the area after fins were spotted in Dighton Harbor Wednesday evening.

Dighton Harbormaster Ronald Marino hopped into his powerboat and found the shark stranded on a sandbar.

Marino initially thought the predator may be a sand tiger shark, but after photos were sent to an expert for analysis, he got a different, much more docile answer.

Marino says that basking sharks feed on plankton and that it was never a threat to the public.

Once high tide rolled in Wednesday night, the shark was able to free itself and swim in an unknown direction. The shark has not been seen since.
