Shark feasts on four pounds of surfer's leg3/24/2012
Glen Folkard did NOT have a g'day five weeks ago when he was mauled by a bull shark off the Australian coast, losing a near-fatal amount of blood. Today the 44-year-old dad is showing off his battle scars (losing four pounds of flesh from your leg is not a pretty sight -- just sayin') and describing his frightening ordeal. "It was everything you'd think it would be, just sheer terror," he comments. Although the Jaws-like incident hasn't kept people out of the surf at the beach where Folkard was attacked, one Tweep shudders, "Theres a reason I dont go in the sea." The forgiving Folkard doesn't even hold a grudge against the shark, observing, "He didn't know any better, it was a mistaken identity."
