The great white shark Mary Lee has been tracked some 71 miles off Bermuda’s south shore.

Her satellite tag signal tracked her at 4:51 this morning.

Her closest documented approach was on Friday when she was 21 miles to the north-east.

The 3,456 pound shark was tagged off Cape Cod last September as part of the Ocearch Project in the US.

The 16-footer was tracked via satellite; her tag transmits a signal every time she breaks the water’s surface.
