Hope the little fella fully recovers. Before anyone goes on a rant, it is the ocean, the temperature is in the mid eighties and there are lots of critters everywhere. Saw a small 6 foot shark cruising with the mullet just yesterday.

i supposed it could be a blue fish….but most likely a shark….

Surrounding beaches should start using the term “marine animal” ..

Then maybe our local news organizations want report “SHARK ATTACK” as their feature story…
