Who would have thought we could possibly have sharks in the Ohio river?
In Olmsted IL, the waters that had been flooding the banks have receded leaving the remains of a shark behind.
The shark was found dead on a boat ramp in Olmsted, IL.
A conservation officer has stated that it is a shark.
The shark was found by a commercial fisherman. The shark was dead on the ramp.
A.J.Hendershott, a Missouri Conservation official stated it is most likely a young bull shark.
Bull sharks are able to live in fresh water and it’s not the first time that one has been known to travel up the Mississippi River from the gulf area. They have traveled as far and St Lous mostly during the flooding times of year.
It is a rare thing to have found one this far up in the Ohio River.
