NANTUCKET, Mass. (AP) — A cleaning crew has found an unexpected mess after arriving at Sea Dog Brew Pub on Nantucket: a 5-foot-long shark blocking the door.
Pub manager Jimmy Agnew says he doesn't know why anyone would have dumped the sea creature there.
Nantucket's public works department hauled the dead shark away after its discovery around 7 a.m. Thursday.
But Agnew said the pub fielded calls and questions all day long after word got out about the land shark.
He said a comedian whose band performs at the pub also posted a series of jokes about it on Facebook.
One suggested the shark went to Sea Dog "to meet his chums."
