‘Never a dull moment’: Florida sheriff’s office called after shark, gator found in same creek


ALACHUA COUNTY, Fla. (WESH) — In what the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office called it’s “most Florida call of the week,” deputies discovered a shark that had been dumped in a creek and they found an alligator nearby.

In a post on its Twitter account, the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office said the roughly 5 ½ foot shark had been caught elsewhere and then dumped in a creek off East University Avenue.

“Don’t worry – Lake Forest Creek isn’t shark-infested,” the sheriff’s office tweet said.
