CAPE LOOKOUT, N.C. — New footage has been released of the recent shark feeding frenzy along the North Carolina Outer Banks.

WCTI-TV reported that the videos show more than 100 sharks attacking a school of blue fish in October at Cape Lookout National Seashore.

Brian Recker posted a video of the incident to YouTube earlier this month, which got more than 5 million views.

But Andrew Radford also has footage of the incident and he just posted it online on Friday.

The videos were posted in two parts. The first can be viewed above and the second below.

Radford wrote online:

“On Thursday, October 9 at sunset I witnessed a shark feeding frenzy along the Cape Lookout National Seashore. I was fishing and noticed the birds crashing the water and then came fins along the shoreline. About 50 black tip sharks were feeding on the point in ankle deep water. They were eating finger mullet and glass minnows as well as blue fish. Enjoy this epic video!”
