Diver bitten by shark

A scuba diver was bitten by a shark this weekend off Jupiter Florida.

The man works for a company that offers shark encounter tours off the coast.

According to ABC 25, He was working at the time of the incident, but other information is currently unknown.

Often times shark encounter groups will take milk crates full of fish parts to lure the sharks in for photos and up-close interactions.

The practice is illegal in Florida waters, but not in federal waters.

The act of  feeding shark has been controversial as some say sharks will become accustomed to divers offering food which could possible end in a negative shark human interaction.

This is the forty-fifth shark bite worldwide, six of which were fatal, two were out of water and two currently unconfirmed.

The location has been marked on the 2015 shark attack bites map.

Will update when more info becomes available.

Thanks to the Shark Bytes app for the notification.
