Nurse shark freed from reef

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAA nurse shark that had apparently won a battle with a fisherman became snagged July 8 at the Navarre Beach Marine Sanctuary Gulf-side reef. Thanks to the quick response of two divers and a local swimmer, the shark was freed and able to go on its way.
