A shark bit a woman on the leg as she waded through three feet of water off Pepper Park beach, a sheriff's report said.
Carolyn Griffin, 58, told deputies she thought the bump she felt on her leg around 11:45 a.m. Saturday came from a stray boogie board, the report said.

But Griffin spotted the three feet long shark as it swam away.
The bite left several lacerations on Griffin's leg, each three and four inches long and deep enough to reach to the calf muscle, a lifeguard told deputies.
