Carmel GWS attack 11/24
« on: November 24, 2017, 03:43:59 PM »
Just heard from a buddy at MBARI that a GWS tagged a spearfisherman at SWS about an hour ago. Anyone have more info? Hope everyone's okay.

EDIT: just dug this up: http://www.kion546.com/news/emergency-officials-responding-to-stillwater-cove-confirm-shark-attack/661672979

I haven't been able to find anything online, but it looks like all the MBARI divers got an email blast about it.

Just edited my original post with a link, but it looks like CalFire & Monterey Co Sheriff confirmed it was a shark attack

Yeah I was told the same Bro:/ I knew someone saw a 14 ft last weekend or some kids where flaming they saw one but we went out and saw nothing you just have to be cautious and always prepared we are in they’re territory
