DNR means "Do Not Resuscitate", right?Posted by dangoodspeed
Show about just this very thing. Interesting but kinda scary at the same time. Bull sharks are aggressive fuckers and it'd suck to have one take off your leg unannounced.Posted by Stein1071
I live on the Mississippi in Iowa, we're probably crawling with sharks if they're finding them that far north.Posted by Bejaroo
As a Minnesotion that's not good...🐬🐳🐋🐙Posted by tinkerwashisname
I hope they didn't kill it. That shark earned its right to be there.Posted by PUSSY-BOOGER
Bullshark don't give a fuuuck!Posted by skyjello
As a person who's been chased onto land by a bullshark, don't get in the water. Ever.Posted by farfromahero
Come young shark, sit upon my lap. Let me tell you a story"Posted by ttnorac
As a Minnesotan, I'll just stay in the boat now.Posted by audio_phile0921
This species is also known as the Zambezi shark in southern Africa where there is a river of the same name. It will swim miles up the river and attack bathing farmers.
They also swim up a local river where I live and will congregate around levies at night to prey on freshwater fish.Posted by WaywardWayfarer
yo derpderpington, I live right by the river as well... let me come tubeing with you? :DPosted by theloan

As a Minnesotan this actually made me say "what the fuck?!"Posted by OriginalHoneyBadger
This was in Lake Pepin(Lake City, MN) a few years ago. They were scuba diving to investigate the site where a truck went through the lake ice and the divers found this little guy nearly dead in the cab. They pulled him out, took pictures, and let him go, because what the fuck else are you going to do with a shark in Minnesota?
This is not new news; Scientists have found fossilized shark teeth in the Mississippi as Minnehaha Falls(Minneapolis). So, in the past there were sharks, so it's not a surprise that they are still there.

Bull sharks have been found as far as 1705 miles up the Mississippi river, however, this appears to be even further up. Was this shark caught now?
If so, that's extremely bad news as that would appear to make them acclimatized to colder water, something they're not known for.
There's a native population in the Mississippi as well as the Illinois river. A female bull shark was supposedly netted and weighed ( 6' 9" and over 300 lbs.) in Lake Michigan off the coast of Chicago, though the story is hard to confirm. If true, the shark would have made its way up the Illinois river into lake Michigan.
More bad news, bull sharks appear to be able to tolerate colder water than previously thought, as evidenced by their appearance in Minnehaha Creek in Miniapolis.
Pound for pound, bull sharks are the most deadly of all sharks known to attack man, one good thing is that few attacks have been recorded in fresh water rivers where they thrive, though that could obviously change at a moments notice.Posted by ENRICOs
They usually need to return to the sea because they have salt glands that allow them to live in fresh water that need to be replenishedPosted by jamesbecker211
Bull sharks are mean. Check out the Jersey Shore shark attacks.
There is a lot of disagreement on what did this, but the latest consensus was that a white did the attacks in the ocean, but a bull was responsible for the Matawan creek attacks.Posted by no_dice_grandma
That there is a cold-blooded killer. But seriously, why is it in Minnesota?Posted by Jacklebot

Not really WTF. Some sharks are fine in fresh water and are found in the damndest places.Posted by DorkJedi

Being a Minnesotan myself, there are some crazy fish in the Mississippi. What's even crazier is that the shortest distance to the ocean by river from here would be straight down the Mississippi. Over 2000 miles.Posted by camzac08
Bull sharks end up in all sorts of wacky water areas. Lakes and rivers. They can survive in both fresh and salt water. During hurricane season a lot of them end up in waters you'd think you'd never see them in. Also they have an extremely high testosterone level which makes them extremely dangerous.Posted by 185139
