Colorado Governor Jared Polis took to Twitter to share that our state once again tied for the least shark attacks in the country, which is great news considering we're landlocked. That said, we have some questions for New Mexico.

Oh, OK.

Anyway. Whether you like Polis or not, you can't argue with facts here. We tied with states like Wyoming, Montana and basically every other state that does not touch an ocean aside from Illinois, Kentucky, Missouri and the aforementioned New Mexico... for some reason.
