another shark attack...this one in humboldt. doesn't look good for the victim.
how is that bite-mark? perfect and terrifying.( i hope the guy lives...)
Nice quotes from the witnesses, NOT....ugh....did you *have* to publish that shit? We get it...we get what happens when a great white decides to bite you. It's not pretty and quite carnal and raw, ok ok. Publishing the gore version is pretty tactless. Times-standard, you're just another meta-rag that's built on a white labeled bullshit news framework. Congrats.

St. Joseph Hospital spokesperson Leslie Broomall said the shark bite victim is in fair condition.
The Times-Standard is still awaiting confirmation of the victim's name from the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office.
More information will be posted as it becomes available.
Happy to hear he's in fair condition, looking at the bite, it looks like a miracle. Now can he have his chunk of board back?
With @piss on this... Didn't need the details. Ugh. Hoping for continued improvement in his condition.
On the bright side, looks like the bite missed the stringer. I'm sure Alex can repair it for him.
Prayers go out to the young lad- hope he survives mother earths creature from the ocean
Bummer....that is a nasty bite. Good news is from the latest updates is that it looks like he is going to survive.
Hope bro is okay. Gw shark at 2:20
I hope he recovers.
Area is loaded in creeks, streams, and the lagoon/bay. Sharky as all hell. He got hit middle of the day. My prayers are certainly with him.
Man, I got off easy. Best wishes to this surfer for a speedy recovery. October has lived up to its reputation this year.
It looks like he is going to recover.
from the article...
Adam Brown, an Arcata resident and independent researcher who has been studying and tracking great white sharks since the early 2000s, said they can be found off the North Coast year-round. Great white activity peaks from the end of August to the beginning of December, he said.
”If you are a surfer up here and you go in the water in the fall, the odds are good that a great white has swam by you at some point, and you didn't even know it,” he said.
Awesome... Dude said he punched that bitch in the head til he let go...
Second gnarly CA attack in a week. I respect sharks, but the rate of attacks is disturbing.
