Key West Shark Attack

While I was chasing permit last week in the Lower Keys I got to witness a rare sight on the flats. A ten foot bull shark attacked and killed a full grown southern stingray about 100 yards off the bow of my buddy's boat.  Here's the shark: 

Here's what was left of the stingray:

And here's the shark cruising away looking for another meal.  Notice the boat in the background and the dive flag it's flying.  This was the first week of lobster season and there were three people in the water about fifty yards in front of it.  And yes, we motored over and told them what we just saw.
