HORRIFYING images show a 9-foot sand tiger shark that washed up along the US coastline.

The sighting of the beast with "intimidating teeth" comes after at least six shark attacks were reported in the same area in weeks.

A man said he found the shark around 7am on July 28 in Longport, New Jersey.

He called police, who brought in a truck to remove the giant shark.

"It was pretty easy to locate, considering it was huge," the unidentified man told the Philly Voice.

"I just walked over and noticed that one side of the shark looked a bit more gruesome."

One of the photos obtained by the Voice shows the shark had a large gash across its belly, exposing its organs.

“There had to be about 20 birds eating some of the remains that were to the side of the shark,” the man said.

Several marine biologists told the Voice that the carcass was a sand tiger or grey nurse shark.

A spokesperson for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Fisheries said that these sharks are common in the northeastern United States, and New Jersey.

“They appear intimidating with their teeth, but are pretty docile sharks.

"In fact, they are a popular shark in aquariums given their fierce look, and because they do well in captivity."

None of the shark attacks in the tri-state this summer have been fatal.

The first was on June 30, when a man in his 50s was bitten on the right foot while swimming in Jones Beach in Nassau County's Long Island.

Shawn Donnelly, 41, was knocked off his surfboard when a sand tiger shark attacked off the coast of Smith Point Beach on July 13.

He was left with a four-inch gash wound to the leg.

Donnelly revealed that he punched the shark to fend off the beast.

He told NBC New York: “It got my left calf and knocked me off my board… when I was falling off my board, I saw the fin and its back.”

A 49-year-old tourist from Arizona was attacked by a shark at Seaview Beach on the same day.

Police said the "shark came up from behind and bit him on the left wrist and buttocks."

John Mullins, 17, who was participating in lifeguard training, was attacked by a shark on July 7.

Lifeguard Zach Gallo, 33, was also bitten while he was doing training exercises at Smith Point Beach on July 3.

Last month, a great white shark carcass washed up on a beach in Quogue Village. It was 7- to 8-feet long.

Sightings and attacks led several south shore beaches to close in recent weeks.

“Climate change is definitely playing a role […] especially in the sightings we’re seeing this year and last year,” said Chris Paparo of the South Fork Natural History Museum’s shark research team.

Hoskins, Streaking Phillies Rout Nationals 11-5

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Rhys Hoskins homered in the first inning for the third straight game — the first Phillies player to do it since at least 1900 — and the surging Philadelphia Phillies routed the Washington Nationals 11-5 on Saturday night.

J.T. Realmuto and Matt Vierling also went deep for the surging Phillies, who have won nine of 10 to move a season-best 11-games over .500. Realmuto also tripled and drove in three runs and Jean Segura had three hits for Philadelphia, which will try for a four-game series sweep of the Nationals on Sunday.

The Phillies improved to 38-19 since June 1, which was the final game for manager Joe Girardi before being replaced by interim manager Rob Thomson.

Luke Voit homered and Lane Thomas had three hits and an RBI for Washington, which is an MLB-worst 36-73. The Nationals have lost eight of 10 overall and four of five since trading star slugger Juan Soto and first baseman Josh Bell to the San Diego Padres. They have dropped nine of 11 to the Phillies this year.

Hoskins hit a 440-foot solo drive to deep left with one out off Patrick Corbin (4-16) in the opening inning. Vierling, after making a stellar diving catch in center field for the first out of the game, followed with a three-run shot to left four batters later.

Bryson Stott’s two-run triple made it 6-0, and Corbin was lifted after getting just two outs following a walk to Kyle Schwarber in the leadoff man’s second at-bat in the first inning. Corbin had gotten Schwarber to ground out leading off the first in his initial at-bat.

It was the sixth straight loss for Corbin, who signed a six-year, $140 million deal with Washington prior to the 2019 season. He gave up five hits and needed 43 pitches for those two outs while raising his season ERA to 7.02. In the last six contests, Corbin has a 12.46 ERA with 44 hits allowed in 21 ⅔ innings.

Phillies starter Ranger Suarez (8-5) surrendered three runs on seven hits in 5 1/3 innings with five strikeouts and two walks.

After Philadelphia scored three more times in the second to make it 9-0, the Nationals plated four runs in the sixth against Suarez and Nick Nelson via Voit’s leadoff homer and Tres Barrera’s two-run double off Nelson that closed the book on Suarez.

Realmuto connected in the bottom of the frame for a two-run homer to center into the Philadelphia bullpen, where right-handed reliever Andrew Bellatti snagged the ball with a nice catch.

McBRIDE, REED HONORED

ROSTER MOVES

The Phillies released OF Odúbel Herrera and RHP Jeurys Familia. Both were designated for assignment on Tuesday after the club acquired OF Brandon Marsh and RHP David Robertson via trades.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Nationals: DH Nelson Cruz (stiff neck) returned to the lineup and went 1 for 3 with a pair of walks.

UP NEXT

Nationals RHP Cory Abbott (0-0, 1.00) will make his third career starter and oppose Phillies RHP Aaron Nola (7-8, 3.25) in the final contest of the four-game series on Sunday afternoon.
