Today's award goes to the unnamed 'star' of the video clip below. The Dorsal Fin describes it as follows:
YouTube user dnahoghunter recently posted the ... video to demonstrate how NOT to handle a juvenile blacktip shark (Carcharhinus limbatus). The video description points out that this incident was the result of improper safety and the shark was "simply doing what nature intended".
While the blacktip shark is generally viewed as harmless toward humans, this video shows that even small wild animals can inflict quick damage on a person, given certain circumstances.
I recommend The Dorsal Fin to anyone who wants to learn more about shark attacks and such things. It's an interesting site.
On to the video!
Anyone would think the shark wasn't grateful for being caught! Who would have guessed?
