A video has emerged showing a giant shark struggling to break free and free itself from a fishing vessel after jumping on board somehow. This is something you don’t see every day.
According to Daily Mail:
In the clip, taken off the coast of Long Island in New York state, fisherman looks on in horror as the mako shark writhes around on the deck of the boat with its body trapped beneath the guardrail. The shark’s mouth becomes bloodied after it had bit the rail several times as it struggles to release itself.
The sea creature was only released after an innovative idea from one of the crew members paid off. Captain Don Law, from Outlaw Fishing Charters, tied a rope around the shark’s fin while another crew member kept its head facing the ocean by hooking it with fishing line.
The video then cuts to the shark being lowered into the water and Don cutting the rope to release back into its natural habitat.
‘We’re gonna need a bigger boat!’ Joked Don during the ordeal.
Mako sharks measures around 3.2 m (10 ft) in length and weighs from 60–135 kg (132–298 lb).
