Possible Shark Attack Does Not Worry Beach-Goers

Possible Shark Attack Does Not Worry Beach-Goers

Posted: Updated:
PENSACOLA BEACH -

A shark attack could happen any day at the beach.

In fact, it could have been the cause of an injury to a man's leg Saturday afternoon. It happened in the waters off of Pensacola Beach.

A man was said to be swimming through a pod of dolphins when something in the water bit him, causing minor injuries, but scary moments.

Authorities can't confirm it was a shark though. In fact, they say it could have been a number of creatures.

"There are a lot of things out there that can bite you. Bluefish can bite you, barracuda can bite you, even dolphins can bite you. People don't realize it but dolphins, can, and will bite a human being. They're a wild animal," says Santa Rosa Island Water Supervisor Dave Greenwood.

But, that didn't scare many this weekend. In fact, the crowds were the usual size, with many people swimming in the water.
