Shark Falls Out of Sky, Hits Golf Course, is Saved

An on-duty course marshall at San Juan Hills Golf Club in San Juan Capistrano, California (say that 10 times fast) was witness to a most unusual site earlier this week: A live two-foot long leopard shark thrashing near the 12th tee.

The marshal immediately picked up the shark, placed it in the back of his golf cart and drove it back to the clubhouse. Cart attendant Bryan Stizer immediately placed the shark in a bucket of mild salt water and then clocked-out and drove down to Baby Beach to release him/her.

“I thought he was dead,” Stizer told The Capistrano Dispatch. “When I dropped him into the water, he just lied there for a few seconds, but then he did a twist and shot off into the water.”

Director of Club Operations Melissa McCormack says they believe the shark was picked up by a predatory bird who must have lost its grip on the fish and dropped it.

“It had a little blood on it, but it was still alive,” McCormack said, noting the puncture wounds near its dorsal fin. “We didn’t want to waste any time. Poor guy, he got dropped onto a golf course.”

A bizarre story – but we’re happy to hear that it had a happy ending!

  • Hmmm falling out of the sky. Wonder how that happened. I can’t even begin to think of the possible scenarios. Poor little guy. The impact probably damaged some internal organs.

“Animal Cruelty” And Criminal Intent

Animal advocates need to be more aware of the realities surrounding these laws.

Jeremy Corbyn’s Vegan “Process”

When we reject human injustice, nobody needs to go on a “journey” to get to that point. Where animals are concerned, we’re all too eager to pack the car, don the sunglasses and go for ride before we see the truth of what has been in front of us the entire time.

Vegan Advocacy Ideas For The Arts

Creative education, in the context of social justice, simply means creating a mental space, a field of consciousness, from which the person feels stimulated to engage or hear what you have to say.
