“It’s a bird, it’s a plane…it’s a…falling shark?”
I cannot even imagine what it would be like to have a shark drop from the sky and land on the ground right in front of me…I’d be thinking of the movie, “Dogma” right away, that much is for sure!
Kudos to the great folks who acted so quickly and saved this little guy –
SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, Calif. – “Nobody yelled “Fore!” at a Southern California golf course when a 2-foot-long shark dropped out of the sky and flopped around on the 12th tee.
The 2-pound leopard shark was apparently plucked from the ocean by a bird then dropped on San Juan Hills Golf Club, Melissa McCormack, director of club operations, said Thursday.
No one was teeing up when the shark fell Monday afternoon, although some golfers had just left the area, she said.
A course marshal, who makes sure players maintain an appropriate pace, saw something moving around on the tee and went to investigate. He found the shark bleeding with puncture wounds, where it seems the bird had held it in its grasp.
The marshal put the shark in his golf cart and drove it back to the clubhouse.
“He went above and beyond,” McCormack said.
The marshal, McCormack and employee Bryan Stizer wanted to help the small shark, so they stuck it in a bucket of water. Then somebody remembered it wasn’t a fresh water animal, so they stirred up some “homemade sea water” using sea salt from the kitchen, she said.” Full Story
