This was taken in Myrtle Beach on July 10th. It was covered by our sister station WMBF.
WMBF News spoke with one of the people in the video. Sarah Brame claims the video was taken from their beach house in Cherry Grove, and the six to seven foot bull shark stole their five pound red drum catch.
Ripley's Aquarium Marine Biologist Shannon Hughes says the video definitely shows a bull shark, and that they are actually fairly common in South Carolina waters. Hughes says bull sharks are the only kind of shark that can survive in fresh water, which is why they can make their way into streams and rivers inland.
