COLLIER COUNTY: A 35 year old man was bitten by a shark near the Port of the Islands Marina in Collier County on Thursday afternoon. The man and several others were fishing in the Ten Thousand islands area.

One of the men caught a 4-5 foot bull shark and brought it onto the boat. The shark then bit the foot of one of the men.

The man has a three to four centimeter laceration on his foot. He went to Naples Community Hospital for treatment.

The incident is being called a provoked attack. The last time an incident like this was reported in Collier County was back in 2002.
