    One of my favorite case studies. I believe that this was a bull shark. No way a great white swims up a creek. I further believe that the 7 and a half foot GW that was caught was NOT the killer, rather a hoax.

    There was another urban legend about a bull in a Kentucky lake -- equally bogus.

    It doesn't look like there is according to the linked map.

    I'll let you cats decided, I already know the answer. Stay tuned.
    Whut? Freshwater sharks are a real thing?

    But if they are, why aren't they all over the Great Lakes?

    I believe it is indirectly connected to the Ohio river, which then dumps into the Mississippi.

    I think it's actually brackish water sharks.

    Yes, sharks swim far up rivers, even two thousand miles up the Mississippi.
    Unless someone placed them in the lake at a younger/smaller age.
