When I was a little girl, I knew that one day I would be attacked by a shark, while swimming in a lake. Totally possible. We have all heard the urban legends of mysterious people dumping sharks, piranhas, stingrays, alligators, horses, old people, all into our local lakes. Well, here is an actual reporting.
Guntersville, Alabama, 2012, a shark was found dead at the Guntersville Lake boat landing. Story of the decomposing shark spread, creating quite the stir. Hoax stories circled around as fast as fish can swim. People all wanting to believe the long told urban legends.
Naturalists from the area tried to identify the shark but only could speculate, due to the advanced decomposition. Some think that it is a dead Bull Shark, that are known for having the ability to swim from saltwater to fresh. Others believe that it is a Fine Tooth Shark that was dumped by someone from the shark rodeo a week earlier.
Whatever the case maybe, it does make you think twice about jumping in a quiet, still, lake.
Happy Shark Week Everyone!
