WATCH: Floridians Find Bull Shark in Backyard

In an earlier report from NBC2, a resident from Bonita Springs – located in Southwest Florida – found a giant shark swimming in their backyard, and instead of running away screaming, the said person taped it.

According to the news station,

An 8 to 9 foot bull shark has been swimming very close to the condos that line Hickory Boulevard.

Residents say it’s not the first time. Neighbors say people are chumming — throwing bait into the water — which is causing the sharks to return. Now, they are asking the city to get involved and prohibit fishing as well as designate the area as a swimming only area.

Swimming only area? Have these people never seen Jaws?!

Oh, Florida. You’re batsh*t crazy.
