Shark found outside pub's door

A cleaning crew found an unexpected mess outside a pub in Massachusetts: a five-foot long shark blocking the door.

Sea Dog Brew Pub manager Jimmy Agnew says he does not know why anyone would have dumped the sea creature outside the Nantucket establishment.

The island's public works department hauled the dead shark away after its discovery on Thursday morning.

But Mr 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".
