Got this off "The Loop", which is sometimes loopy, so grain of salt.

Supposed to be a Bull Shark, which can live in fresh water, and one of the breeds which also likes to eat people.........Hey, I didn't write it.http://www.theloop.ca/be-afraid-theres-a-shark-in-lake-ontario-maybe/

Shark in Lake Ontario? Nope. Discovery Channel pranked us

KINGSTON, Ont. — It was bull alright, but not of the shark variety.
A video of a what appeared to be a bull shark swimming off of Wolfe Island in Lake Ontario has been revealed to be a marketing ploy for Discovery’s Channel’s Shark Week and its sponsor Nissan Rogue.
“Discovery wants to quell the concerns of Canadians everywhere and reveal that the widely-circulated video of a shark swimming in Lake Ontario is, in fact, not a real shark,” a news release issued Wednesday says. “The video of the incredibly life-like prosthetic model shark is the first stage of a multi-level marketing campaign tied to the channel’s iconic summer event, Shark Week.”

Lake Ontario's pretty deep in a lot of places - and really cold down there

Well at least the lakes are safe...for now.

It's the ocean waters you've got to be concerned with

I don't know if I'd go that far.

They've seen better days, that's for sure.

Discovery will love that. You know apparently Shark Week is coming up, lol.

I'm not so sure about a lot of lakes either. You used to be able to develop photographs in the chemicals from Toronto harbour and there's a lot of heavy metals in some of the lakes around here downwind of old smelters

In the 60s We met an oceanographer near Trenton who was studying the possibility of shark sightings in Lake Ontario. He said it was possible but he had yet to find any solid evidence. Who nose?

Trivia: the largest lake in the world by volume, not surface area, is Lake Bajkal in Russia. It's nowhere near as big as Lake Superior in area, but it's REALLY DEEP!

That is what it looked like to me; dorsal fin was too small for a shark.

I think they have confirmed Greenland Sharks and Bull Sharks in the St Lawrence Seaway, and, let's be realistic, once you're up Kingston way (which is where the video originates supposedly) you're barely in Lake Ontario anyway.

Still it's an admitted marketing ploy from Discovery.

Don't forget to watch Shark Week.

I figure the only sharks in Lake Ontario are the sewer variety ... and maybe the occasional concrete-footed loan type

I think Lake Ontario needs sharks. Would make a great Hollywierd move scenario.

Is it shark week? I'd heard something about that.

We really shouldn't be giving them any bad ideas. They get enough of those on their own.

That'd be OK for a night or two. Then the fish'd start to stink something powerful.

P.S. I think it was Luca Brasi.

You're probably right.

Google has led me astray.

Oh well.

I know! Never trust anyone who say's the aren't evil. If they have to say it, they probably really are.

Lol.

I'm just a lazy speller, I admit it. Instead of taking the time to figure out how to spell it, I'll slap something 'phonetic' into Google and then accept the first "did you mean....." that comes along. My bad.

If you can get Betty White to star in it, it could be a prequal or sequal to Lake Placid.
