    Local Shark Bite

    http://www.islandpacket.com/2014/05/.../99/100/&ihp=1

    Seems a lady got nibbled on at Coligny Beach, on Hilton Head Island just two days ago... It also mentioned attacked in 2007 and 2001, yet none of these events were documented in the International Shark Attack file... Said she was in waste deep water. I was swimming around at that beach all day on Sunday.

    Yeah, thats why I was shocked it made the island packet. Unless a pack of tourists find a dead body in the middle of a parking lot, they usually make sure nothing tarnishes the town reputation.... But its interesting that the island packet is mentioning all these other incidents, and the shark attack file doesn't have it. They have no reason not to public.

    There are wives tales down here about a guy getting eaten by a tiger while swimming off his dock in the Calibogue Sound. Nothing documented.
