The weekend's biggest shark story took place on July 4 in Manhattan Beach, California, where a distance swimmer was attacked by a Great White shark which had become agitated after struggling at the end of a fisherman's line for more than 40 minutes.

Steven Robles was bitten by the seven-foot shark which he then pried from his body.

  2. I hate the way people keep demonizing sharks bad talking about attacks. Nearly every species of shark is endangered. The "fishermen" seemed like a bunch of yahoos who were tormenting the shark for fun. The shark was trying to escape, literally fighting for its life, when the swimmer swam into its path. This was not an unprovoked attack. Humans were clearly to blame, yet it sensationalized as a great white shark attack.
