Iowa DNR were called to Lock and Dam 15, Davenport IA, to the report of an angler catching a shark. Iowa DNR officer Jeff Harrison arrived to the dam and confirmed the shark to be a female 5 1/2 foot bull shark. Dr. Sandy Kemp from Sanibel, Florida arrived on scene, as Kemp was attemping to catch the shark after being reportedly spotted earlier this week. After examining the shark, Kemp confirmed it was a bull shark and believed it has given birth to at least 6 pups sometime in the last week. Bull sharks have, on average, 3 to six pups per year and often spawn in fresh water rivers. This is a monumental occurrence as bull sharks have never been caught this deep in the intercontinental waterways of the United States. Previously, the farthest up the Mississippi River a bull shark has been comfirmed to travel was St. Louis, MO. Bull sharks are able to store salt in their kidneys and use it as they need and often swim up freshwater rivers from the Gulf of Mexico. Bull shark pups eat up to 85 percent of their body weight for the first year they are alive. Sharks prefer to attack in less than three feet of water , so DNR officers are in a scramble to find out for sure if there are pups and if this is a rogue shark or if it was in a group migrating upriver. Watch your children swimming off the shoreline with extra caution as the Fourth of July festivities will make it prime hunting for sharks. Please if you see any sharks don't attempt to catch. Call your local DNR officer and report any sightings.
