    Video: "Shark" Sighting in Lake Ontario Revealed as Shark Week Hoax-0

    by

    Strange things were afoot…errr, a fin…in Lake Ontario.

    A video posted to You Tube last week, allegedly shot on Wolfe Island, where the St. Lawrence River meets Lake Ontario, shows three anglers responding to a mystery fish breaching near a dock. The fish is gray in color, rather large, and has a prominent dorsal fin. The latter characteristic caused many to cry shark.

    That is, until Bell Media announced the video was staged to build hype for the Discovery Canada's already wildly popular Shark Week programming. The animal in the video was actually a prosthetic model shark.

    Huge Cubera Snapper Could Shatter Alabama State Record-0

    by

    A thirty-minute fight with a monster cubera snapper off the coast of Alabama may result in a new state record.

    Brett Rutledge and David Simms were trolling with live hardtail for mackerel in 170 feet of water about 40 miles off of Dauphin Island when something big hit one of the lines. Rutledge immediately grabbed the Shimano Speedmaster reel spooled with 30-pound-test monofilament line and commenced to fighting whatever was on the other end.

    "At first I thought it was a big amberjack because I'd caught quite a few jacks earlier. But when it ran away from the wreck we were fishing, I immediately thought it was a shark," Rutledge told AL.com.

    "Then I got a visual on it and told David, 'Get the gaff!'"

Carlos and his friends were snorkeling at an unknown location when a shark chomped into his swim trunks. The tiny predator refuses to let go and even fights for a better grip. The group can be heard laughing in the video as Carlos tries to remove the shark, which he only achieves by exiting the water.

    Giant Bullfrogs Invade Vancouver Island-2

    by

    Rabbit-sized predators have invaded the Vancouver Island city of Port Alberni, B.C. and they are driving the residents hopping mad.

    Port Alberni is suffering at the hands–and strong legs–of an army of American bullfrogs. No one is quite sure how the invasive species made it to the island, but some of the best guesses blame ornamental water gardeners who stocked their hobby ponds with the king-sized frogs. Failed frog-leg farmers who released their stock into the wild also make likely suspects. Regardless, these frogs are bad news.

    Army Corps of Engineers Propose Oregon Cormorant Cull to Benefit Salmon, Steelhead-0

    by

    In a move that’s sure to enrage PETA, the Audubon Society, and a host of other groups that often oppose conservation efforts, federal officials proposed killing almost 3,000 cormorants that reside on or near East Sand Island at the mouth of the Columbia River in northwest Oregon.

    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers revealed the plan Thursday, according to the Statesmen Journal. Although most folks typically recognize USACE for its involvement in public infastructure, the organization also works on environmental causes including habitat restoration and protecting endangered species. The plan cites an overabundance of birds and their insatiable appetite for steelhead and juvenile salmon (an endangered species).
