Deputies told WOKV that the shark was found by the owner of an RV who was staying in the parking lot. The man said he heard a loud noise around 7:30 a.m. March 3, but thought it came from store employees pushing carts.

The man told deputies that he got out of his RV to go to work and saw the shark on the vehicle’s hood. He took the shark off his RV, put it on the ground and went to work.
