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.

  1. I don’t understand why he is surprised. In Florida there are 3 water rule. 1 learn the stingray shuffle, 2 if there is water in a pool, lake
    lake, or manmade retention pond, then it probably has a gator. 3 if the water connects to the ocean, then it can have a shark.

  2. “I’m worried,” said resident Richard Frey. “I won’t let our grandkids go in the water. Someone is going to be attacked here.”

    It is their habitat. We are the ones encroaching. That is why I don’t wade fish near the Skyway Bridge anymore.

  3. Really, Did this man find a shark in “his” back yard??? or did some rude jerk of a human build a house right in the middle of this shark’s view???

    1. What I am thinking about is an electric device [backpack] I have seen the biologists use in a river: on the discharge, every fish in the vicinity was zapped, and they scooped them and counted by species or whatever. Later they supposedly came to. Perhaps something similar [but bigger] could be used on the sharks and gators.
