The Hamilton Spectator - - CANADA & WORLD -

Beach­go­ers on Cape Cod have an­other thing to be aware of: The Por­tuguese man-of-war has re­turned. If touched, the crea­tures can de­liver an ex­tremely painful sting. Sev­eral of them have been spot­ted in re­cent days. Some washed up on Sea Gull Beach in Yar­mouth, Mass., over the week­end, and an­other was spot­ted ear­lier this week off Stage Beach in Chatham. The Por­tuguese man-ofwar can of­ten re­sem­ble float­ing plas­tic bags and are some­times mis­taken for jel­ly­fish.
