Crazy things happen in Florida, and if you live on the coast near Bonita Springs, then don’t be too surprised if you see a shark cruising past your house. According to WINK-TV, one resident was shocked when he spotted an estimated eight to nine-foot shark just swimming near the the backyard of his condo.
“I’m worried,” said resident Richard Frey. “I won’t let our grandkids go in the water. Someone is going to be attacked here.”
Local anglers have also noticed an increase in bull sharks, not including at least one endangered sawtooth shark that was rescued over the weekend. Many fishermen are reluctant to fish so close to residential areas since it could attract sharks to areas with swimmers, but just imagine being able to reel in a shark in your backyard.
