The local fishermen in Jacksonville Beach Pier, Florida are hearing some scary stories. The stories are so frightening that one of them refuses to return to the sea. But no, they’re not talking about mermaids and sea monsters, but sharks!

Sharks live in oceans, although some types, like the bull sharks and river sharks, inhabit fresh water. They migrate to search for food.

There are more than 470 species of this animal; however, only the great white, oceanic whitetip, tiger, and bull sharks are known to attack humans. 

Recently, several shark attacks have occurred along the East Coast.

There were at least 11 fatal attacks recorded in the area, the last fatality being in 2014.

Local fisherman Rebecca Colon said, “I look down, and I was like ‘Wait a minute that’s a tiger shark’, and I cut the line and that was it, and let it go, I don’t mess with that.”

Now, Colon’s fishing trips have turned from fishing stories to scary shark tales!


I can’t blame her for not wanting to go back out there though. But maybe if we stop destroying these creatures’ natural habitat, then they wouldn’t need to migrate and eat human beings. What do you think? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

If there’s one thing that is essentially challenging yet equally rewarding job in the world, then that would be no other than parenting. Aside from assuring that the basic necessities for all children are met, the social, emotional and psychological upbringing should also be compatible with the struggles that life has to offer. As for this Russian father, being a good provider is not just enough. For him, fatherhood is defined on how brave you have risen to the challenges of becoming the epitome of a good role model to those who are next-in-line or at least for the bold ones who are willing to sacrifice singlehood in pursuit of family life.

A Russian father shared this on Reddit.
