    Boy reportedly bitten by shark at Cape Henlopen

    http://www.delawareonline.com/story/...open/10262787/

    A 16-year-old reportedly was bitten by a shark Monday at Cape Henlopen, prompting state parks officials to delay Tuesday’s opening of swimming areas at Cape Henlopen State Park.

    The boy, injured about 5 p.m., was treated for gashes to his left forearm at Beebe Healthcare in Lewes, officials said.

    No information was available about the type or size of the shark, which the boy told officials released its bite and swam away after he batted it with his right arm, the state Division of Parks and Recreation said in a statement.

    Chief Wayne Kline of Parks Enforcement said the park’s main swimming beach will delay letting swimmers into the water Tuesday until later in the morning.

    Lifeguards who go on duty at 9 a.m. and Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control marine biologists will monitor the water, he said.

    They will be monitoring the ocean beaches “for unusual activity” in the wake of the shark bite, DNREC’s Division of Parks and Recreation said.

    The boy told parks enforcement agents he was standing in about 5 feet of water when he felt something grab his arm.

    Lifeguards on duty at Cape Henlopen treated his cuts, and the Lewes Fire Department transported the boy by ambulance to the hospital, officials said.

    It was a tiger shark, not GWS. 1210 lbs off OCMD in 1983.

    What sort of "unusual activity" will they be looking for? Sharks in the water? In the ocean?!? Really? Who woulda thunk it?

    We need some apex predators down there quick to commence the culling...
