Forget “Shark Week” – This is the Summer of the Shark!

The summer of 2015 is off to a blazing start in the shark attack category. The Eastern seaboard of the US has been under a siege of shark attacks, the like of which has never been seen. As of July 5th, 2015, eight people have been attacked by sharks along the North Carolina coast in just the past three weeks. The most recent was today when a marine was attacked in Surf City NC, the victim was treated and released.

North Carolina averages between one and two shark attacks a year, but there have already been eight attacks in the Tarheel State in 2015. The attack on 16-year-old Hunter Treschl of Colorado Springs made headlines when she was attacked less than 90 minutes after Kiersten Yow on the shores of North Carolina. And like Yow, Treschl also lost his left arm in the incident.

So beware when you go into the water this summer, because the landlord is always home.
