This has to be the craziest summer yet. I can't recall a time when common every day folks have had so many run-in's with wild animals...especially sea creatures.

I've posted multiple stories in the last two months about sharks and fishermen, sharks and swimmers, whale watchers getting the thrill of their lives when humpback whales swam near their boat. I even had my own dolphin encounter while on vacation in South Carolina last week.

But this one really takes the cake. Boston 25 News did a report about a paddleboarder who got a little too close to a whale on Salisbury Beach.
