Great white shark on its way back home

MONTEREY, Calif. The great white shark that spent a record 198 days in captivity at the Monterey Bay Aquarium is apparently making her way home.An electronic tag on the shark began transmitting data about the shark's location over the weekend _ and she appears to be heading back to the area where she was snared by halibut fishermen last year.

The shark was released on March 31st.

The first signals from the data tag arrived Saturday and pinpointed the shark about 25 miles west of Point Conception in Santa Barbara County _ 200 miles south of where she was released in Monterey County.
