When ya gotta eat...Ya gotta eat!

Although I prefer my moose in a pan or over a fire a shark ain't so picky. Hair, teeth, hooves and all for this one.


www.cbc.ca...

Two quick-thinking men on Newfoundland's northeast coast managed to save a Greenland shark from choking to death on a large piece of moose hide this past weekend. Derrick Chaulk said he was driving down a road by the harbour in Norris Arm North this past Saturday when he saw what he thought was a beached whale. When Chaulk went closer to investigate, he realized it was a shark, which he estimated was about 2.5 metres long, and weighed about 115 kg. The animal was still alive and had a large chunk of moose hide protruding from its mouth. "It [the moose] had the fur and all the liner on it — it was about two feet long, maybe."


And to prove they aren't too picky on their diet:


Greenland sharks are rarely seen on the northeast coast of Newfoundland. They are scavengers, and they feed on food found in shallow water. While their diet is usually fish, they have been found in other jurisdictions to have eaten animals that found their way to the water, from polar bears to reindeer.

Glad the shark is well but the moose has seen better days.


Yup...Truly Canadian!


Peace

Unless of course the shark gets back down to Florida.

Jude, I gotta thank you for this info though. Next time my Canadian fam members ( ONE in particular) says, " I dunno why you live down there on that fault. Why do people live on FAULTS.. and where tornadoes come every year.. thats stupid, EH!" ( I live near the New Madrid fault)... Im going to reply, " In Canada you have friggin moose eating sharks... shut up......"

I just read about your newly found VENOMOUS ugly fish in Canada in another thread....
