Despite the headlines that are spreading like wildfire on Facebook, there are no Bull Sharks in Kentucky Lake.


You have to love social media. You get to see pictures of new babies and the first day of school. You get ridiculous memes and you get more fake news than you can shake a stick at! I mean really! One good headline and you can get a metric ton of people to share a story without ever actually opening it to see if it's true! Enter the "Bull Shark Spotted in Kentucky Lake." THIS is an actual headline that I have seen shared more times than I can count in the last couple of days. People are losing their minds because there is reportedly a Bull Shark in Kentucky Lake - or so the headline says! However, if you take the 2 seconds to open the link and scroll all the way to the bottom of the page, you see this disclaimer:

"This website is an entertainment website, news are created by users. These are humourous news, fantasy, fictional, that should not be seriously taken or as a source of information."

That's right, Ladies & Gentlemen! is not real news! It is made up information that gets spread like a rampant case of internet VD. So to clarify, there are no sharks in Kentucky Lake and you really should open a link to read it before you just hit the share button and cause mass panic! </rant>
