Shark falls from sky on golf course

Fish taken to clubhouse, put in salted water and survives

A leopard shark has survived a fall from the sky onto the 12th hole of a golf course in California. The 65-centimetre long fish was found writhing on the grass and taken to the clubhouse at the San Juan Hills Golf Club where it was quickly put into a bucket of salted water. A cart attendant then used his break to drive the shark back to the Pacific Ocean, about eight kilometres away, where it “just lay there for a few seconds, but then he did a twist and shot off into the water.”
The shark had puncture marks close to its dorsal fin and it had probably been fished out of the sea by a large bird of prey that later lost its grip.
