A runner on Sullivan's Island Wednesday morning discovered a 5-foot bull shark that had apparently beached and died near Station 18 on the island.

The runner, Steven Colman, said he thought the shark was caught in a lagoon between to sand bars as the tide went back.

He discovered the fish around 6 a.m. Maintenance workers later removed it and disposed of the carcass.

This is why I always bring a chainsaw to the beach. /sharknado

And this breed of sharks are apparently the most likely to attack swimmers. Yikes! They use a "bump and bite" attack method, according to Wikipedia. Fun. :/

Yikes. You never know where those guys are lurking. I guess stuff like this is a testament to how infrequently they attack humans.
