According to multiple sources, a two-foot female spiny dogfish was found washed up on a boat ramp on the Ohio River in Illinois. Though initially misidentified as a juvenile bull shark, this was quickly cleared up. There are a few theories out there as to why this dogfish ended up in the Ohio River, including release from a home aquarium, being left as a prank (I know of an incidence of someone leaving a dead blue shark under the diving board in a public pool as a prank), fisheries discard, or being lost from a shipment headed for biology class dissections. The fact that the spines have been removed suggests the latter, though it's likely we'll never know what caused this dogfish's extraordinary migration.
