GULF SHORES, AL (WKRG) — Some spring breakers saw something they surely didn’t expect this week in Alabama — a large shark lurking mere yards away off the beach at Gulf Shores.

Kenneth Clark, of Forsyth, Georgia, captured images of the close encounter with the shark and posted them to his Facebook page.

He says the shark spotting happened near the Seacrest Condos in Gulf Shores.

Earlier this month, a teenager visiting from Kentucky was bitten by a smaller shark and got 80 stitches in the incident.
