Shark Attack

While spear fishing in GTMO it's always a good idea to remove the fish from the water immediately to avoid being bitten by  barracuda or  shark. You see, critters like barracuda and shark are drawn to bloody things.  So this weekend GTMO had the first shark attack ever recorded. Poor fellow lost his calf muscle. I swear I will not get back in the water even if I have something as small as a paper cut. Better safe than sorry.
This shark is one of two sharks the Marines have caught in the past couple of weeks. Jerry is thrilled. He loves shark meat. I haven't eaten any yet. I'm afraid I will eat some and then go to the beach and somehow the sharks will know what I have done. Again better safe than sorry.

I am in fact the guy who was nailed by that shark. So there are no discrepancies, it was a bull shark, around eight feet long. Although my leg is pretty chewed up I did not lose half my calf. Last point: one can theorize all they want, or read all they can, but until it happens, no one knows what they would do if in a similar situation. Thank you for your time
