Bull Shark Spotted in Atwood Lake

What was to be just another day at the beach turned into a nightmare for one family at the Atwood Beach.

Connie Ferguson and her family drove down to Atwood Beach from Canton for a day of fun and sun. But, after a few hours of swimming and playing, her son Jacob noticed something in the water that shouldn't be there. It is believed to be a bull shark.

The bull shark, also known as the Zambezi shark, is a requiem shark commonly found worldwide in warm, shallow waters along coasts and in rivers. The bull shark is known for its aggressive nature, predilection for warm shallow water, and presence in freshwater systems including lakes and rivers.

Officials are awaiting conformation from Ohio Fish and Game before declaring the beach closed, but they are keeping an eye on the situation. Anyone that has a picture of the shark is encouraged to forward it on to M.W.C.D.

    KEOKUK, IA - Great White Sharks Found In Mississippi River While it is not entirely impossible, it is incredibly uncommon for salt water dwelling creatures to stay for lengthy periods of time in fresh water. However, two Great White Sharks have managed to survive the trip and make their way up the Mississippi River somehow. Believed to have started as a mating couple, the two are assumed to have swam the 920 mile journey from the mouth of the Mississippi River that is connected to the Gulf Of Mexico. Officials in Keokuk have contacted the Iowa Department of Natural Resources and will likely have a team in the river soon to capture the two lost sharks.
