Tina Aydon, a scientist at Deep Sea World in Fife, said it was most likely hunting food — it’s diet is fish — or was a female about to pup.

But this is no remake of Steven Spielberg’s “Jaws.” It’s the real story of the Pacific Coast resort of Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo, where a spate of recent attacks against surfers — two of them deadly — have put locals on edge and the tourism industry at risk.
