Early Thursday morning, the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy received a call reporting a dead white shark along the Pamet River in Truro.

The shark was a juvenile male, measuring about 9 ft in length.

Scientists from the Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) were notified and Dr. Lisa Natanson of NOAA came out to perform a necropsy and take samples.

While examining the stomach she found 3 lead weights inside.

Further details regarding the shark will be learned from the samples that were taken.
