The shark, dubbed Great White Shark Cabot, was in the Delaware Bay a week ago, but swam into waters just off of Greenwich, according to OCEARCH.

"I heard sending a ping from the Long Island Sound had never been done before by a white shark," a tweet on the shark's Twitter account reads. "So naturally I had to visit and send one off. Hello Greenwich how are you today?!"

Great White Shark Cabot is 9 feet, 8 inches long, according to OCEARCH.

Last summer, two children were bitten in possible shark attacks at Fire Island beaches. Two sharks, one of which was a Sand Shark, were caught after the incident.
