Witnesses said the young Great White beached itself on the sand bar trying to catch seagulls , luckily for the shark concerned beach goers came to the rescue dousing the animal with water until the harbor master helped return it to the depths.


Well done them

I know I'm grouchy today, but it looked to me like a bunch of idiots that live through their phones, and some professionals that actually helped.

Seriously, they couldn't have at the very least formed a bucket line, to get more water to it faster?

Good for the pros, and the what, two regular folks that helped though.

Can only imagine the stories he's telling his shark friends...

I was minding my own business catching a bite to eat and these humans abducted me and did it experiments!

No Harold, I swear, that human was at least 200 pounds!

Right.

I know it was thinking bad things toward the people who were trying to save it's ass.

Then it was thinking 'I need an agent'.


WTG 2 those who helped!!! Big

What a bunch of pansies. I would have asked everybody to grow a pair and help drag it in together. It looks brain dead from lack of oxygen and will likely die. You pour water over whales and dolphins, not animals with gills.

You didn't notice the teeth?

Plus it seemed a bit pissed off.

Yes, teeth. The opposite end that you would be pulling from. It's real power and agility is found in the water. Pulling it backwards on land and remaining aware of it's movements would create a highly unlikely scenario of being bit. Try grabbing an alligator snapping turtle, now those you have to watch out for.

It was tagged and dragged out where it swam on it's own power. We actually have a great number of Scientist and Organization, including The Boston Aquarium and the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy that come in a moments notice to help and monitor. There are always dolphins, whales, turtles etc that wash ashore and some pretty dedicated people to help.

I think the folks did the best they could given the situation. A Great White is nothing to fool with, it is no Sand Shark. I have heard many tales of people thinking a shark is dead and losing a leg in the folly.

That was awesome! I'm glad they tagged it, I was hoping they would.

One of my worst fears is being attacked by a shark. That said, the whole time the people were just standing around, I was thinking "Just grab the tail and drag the sucker to the water". Couldn't have been that heavy. Glad to see they finally got it back in the water though.

Just stay away from the beach, ok Bruce?

Aussies just grab em by the tail and drag em back in, keeps the tourist population down if we save em.

Yes, I was the idiot who stopped to help some poor Good Samaritan who was trying to move a smallish snapping turtle off the road. Poor guy was in his business suit. I hadn't yet tried moving a snapper, and realized really quickly that it's not like moving box turtles. The shells are razor sharp and those necks are long and flexible!

We looked like quite the stupid pair out there poking at it with sticks and trying to drag it really quickly before it had a go at us.

come on man, you saw these morons cheer when the buckets of water were thrown on it, you expect these idiots to be able to put there minds together and complete this task. and then the guy drags it backwards through the water.
my bet is it's dead....from mental trauma

First off, no idiot that I know stops to help someone.

You must have been a tomboy growing up, not many girls would try and handle a snapper.

Oh definitely a tomboy.

I stopped to help the poor guy when I was older.

When I was a still a girl I was unhooking water snakes at the local reservoir. That was hilarious. A teenage boy had somehow gotten a poor water snake on his hook and was lofting the poor thing in the air screaming like a girl and shouting "water moccasin!" I simply went over, grabbed it behind the head and unhooked it and dropped it back into the water. Even if it had been a moccasin, it wasn't going to be able to do anything.

Now here is a story about regular people with regular jobs and regular lives doing wonderful things.

There is so much negativity in the world and seeing this reminds me that most people are good.

See a shark beached and stuck and their first instinct is to help it, not hurt it or kill it.

And nobody thought to mount a frikin "lazer beam" on this shark?
