YAHOO.COM - At the San Juan Hills Golf Club in southern California, course hazards include sand traps and falling sharks.
Or they did on Monday (Oct. 22) afternoon, when a 2-foot-long, live leopard shark apparently plummeted from the sky and landed very close to the 12th tee box at the San Juan Capistrano, Calif., course.
The writhing fish out of water was discovered by an on-duty course marshal, who acted fast to save the shark, according to the Capistrano Dispatch.
He loaded it onto his golf cart and drove it back to the clubhouse, where other employees joined the cause to save the wayward animal. After briefly placing the shark in a bucket of homemade salt water, cart attendant Bryan Stizer used his break to drive the shark to the Pacific Ocean, about 4 miles (6.5 kilometers) away.
"I thought he was dead," Stizer told the Dispatch. "When I dropped him
into the water, he just lied there for a few seconds, but then he did a
twist and shot off into the water." click here to read more
