Leopard shark falls from sky. Sharks in California are common, but four miles in land on the grass at San Juan Hills Golf Club. The 2-foot-long Leopard shark was spotted thrashing about on the 12th tee box at the Golf course located just outside of Dana Point.
The shark was discovered by a marshal who picked up the shark, placed it in the back of his golf cart and drove it back to the clubhouse.
Golf cart attendant Bryan Stizer, briefly placed the shark into a bucket filled with water and a bit of salt. Stizer clocked out on his break and drove the baby shark back out to the ocean where it was released.
The Capistrano Dispatch reported that Director of Club Operations, Melissa McCormack believes the shark was picked out of the ocean by a predatory bird and was dropped onto the course. The shark was found bleeding from puncture wounds near its dorsal fin.
