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.
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.
