Sounds like a Brown Shark... Not sure where you are, but very common in my area.

lots and lots of sharks on the outer banks lately. Been surfing there for a decade and never seen this much activity. Don't know what's going on...
It's pretty well documented actually. There is a lack of food in open waters. The fisheries are in bad shape due to over fishing. Sharks are increasingly coming closer to shore to find food, and unfortunately sometimes find us.
Let's be honest here the East coast is becoming shark infested. This means we should take down swellinfo.com for the entire eastern seaboard since hopefully it'll prevent further shark attacks. A few words of advice to all: stay out of the water and give your surf equipment to me.
Sounds like another sparky who's bored & scamming the equally bored media efftards. It's the famous double-negative: can't prove it, so print it as fact 'cause it must be right until....you prove it wrong, which you can't do....so it must be true! This is the way all the loons work it, like archie and his contrails & wayne and his mystical miracle spirits, for example.
It's where the entire 'news' biz is headed. Lame as he!! .
