MONTEREY, Calif. (AP) — A shark attacked a surfer Saturday off a California beach, biting him in the neck and arm and sending him to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Eric Tarantino of Monterey was attacked around 7 a.m., just minutes after he and a friend entered the water at Marina State Beach, The Monterey Herald reported.

MOD CUT

Following the attack, Tarantino's damaged surfboard was placed in the back of a state park ranger's patrol car in the beach parking lot. A few fellow surfers stopped to examine the board's new gashes.

Jones said signs will be posted along the area's beaches advising of the shark danger and recommending that beach-goers refrain from water activities for the next week.

She said the waters will be observed in the coming days for additional shark activity.
Obviously a California trial attorney with too much time on his hands so he went "fishing!" Bet he offers to represent the surfer in the lawsuit against King Neptune. This did happen in CA after all.

Well where should the sharks be? The shark was right where sharks are supposed to be - in the ocean.

Meanwhile, people kill tens of millions of sharks each year for crass things like shark fin soup, and people keep multiplying by about 80 million annually (worldwide), crowding beaches and wilderness areas more and more.

Just giving some perspective on who the real "victims" are.

I was stationed at Ft. Ord for 5 years in the late 80's/early 90's. I used to visit Carmel Beach quite frequently. That is, until I visited the Monterey Aquarium and witnessed a 14-16' great while cruising through the kelp beds at the observation window. That ended my swims in the area.
