These days, the checklist of causes to remain out of Florida feels prefer it grows longer by the minute. But even when you take politics and stifling summer time warmth out of the equation (as exhausting as which may be), there are nonetheless loads of causes to be afraid of Georgia’s dingleberry. Florida Man and Florida Woman might be lurking round any nook, as may alligators, an abundance of venomous snakes and even mosquitos carrying malaria. Now, although, you possibly can add a brand new concern to the checklist — cocaine sharks.
Tampa Bay’s Fox 13 reviews that marine biologist Tom Hird believes there’s probability that sharks have been consuming bales of cocaine which were dumped off the coast of Florida to be picked up by smugglers. Even when you’re not already frightened of sharks, the concept there are sharks on the market increased than the Empire State Building on cocaine ought to nonetheless be terrifying. Although, for now, it doesn’t sound like Hird has actually noticed any sharks consuming bales of nostril sweet.
But simply because it hasn’t formally been noticed doesn’t imply there isn’t proof that it has occurred. Hird reportedly traveled to Florida to research the likelihood after he heard from a variety of fishermen who claimed to have witnessed sharks consuming floating bundles of blow.
In addition to observing odd shark habits throughout a dive, he additionally teamed up with University of Florida environmental scientist Tracy Fanara to drop faux cocaine bales into the ocean. When they did, they reportedly noticed a variety of sharks swim as much as the bales and take bites of them, with not less than one grabbing the entire thing and swimming off with it.
While it’s completely doable that Florida sharks aren’t doing cocaine, now that we’ve heard it’s a chance, does anybody imagine it’s not really taking place? That the sharks are all sticking to their DARE pledges and refusing to go snowboarding when it’s sitting proper there in entrance of them? For free? Really? There’s no method.
