It's raining sharks in Orange County! No, we're serious. An on-duty course marshall at San Juan Hills Golf Club in San Juan Capistrano discovered a live, two-foot-long shark thrashing around on the 12th tee box on Monday afternoon. Maybe it wasn't the biggest of beasts, but still, it was a shark. On a golf course. That fell from the sky.
The golf course is located less than four miles from the Pacific Ocean, and Director of Club Operations Melissa McCormack believes the possible leopard shark—described as "light brown in color with black spots"—was plucked out of the water by a predatory bird, then dropped onto the course, according to The Capistrano Dispatch. When the shark was found around 4 p.m., it was bleeding from puncture wounds near its dorsal fin.
