Wait for it… you knew this was going to happen- the person from San Francisco who likes the thought of sharks eating the struggling seals who are having a bad year, seals who are looking for the salmon and other fish who are incoming and discovering the rivers are in a severe state of drought, which has stressed the entire Delta ecosystem… “silver linings” - until the shark eats a surfer, windsurfer, distance swimmer, or kayaker…
“This is the first recorded predation event I know in the San Francisco Bay. For me it is pretty exciting and a sign that the health is returning to the San Francisco Bay ecosystem.”
Ah, healthy ecosystems, where we’re part of the menu.
that there were previous attacks in the bay, but only 1 or 2. There was also one at Baker Beach (fatality) in the '50’s, but that isn’t what I’d consider “in” the bay, but at the mouth.
Seemingly, there was a shark attack on a human near Coyote Point, which is pretty far in the bay. I think it is safe to say that sharks are not all that uncommon in the area, but attacks are rare.
In 2015, more people have died while taking a selfie (12) than have been killed by a shark (8).
