Sharks in New Jersey, 1916

EVENT 1916: The “Jersey Shore Shark Attack” created a panic on the beaches along the New Jersey Atlantic Ocean coastline in July. Four people were killed and one injured in the summer attacks. On July 14, Michael Schleisser killed and retrieved a 9 foot shark in the same area. While there was widespread panic at first, there were no more attacks following Schleisser’ foray. “Shark(s)” became part of American culture as a term for danger.
