Brave Fishermen Join Forces To Rescue Beached Dusky Shark
Two men in Florida brave the rough surf and near freezing winter temperatures to save a dusky shark that has beached itself on shore. Faith in humanity restored!
Footage has emerged featuring these two fishermen struggling to rescue a dusky shark stranded on a beach. The video shows two men trying to help the beached shark swim back into the water. It is amazing how they pull shark’s tail and try to help the massive mammal to get on its ‘feet’ and swim back into the ocean.
We don’t get to hear a lot of stories like this one. Usually when we think of sharks, we think of grizzly marine predators that will bite of our extremities with just a snap of their jaws. But somewhere in the world, there are people that actually try to save these beasts. And why is that?
The answer is simple, sharks are a part of the complex marine ecosystem. Their presence in the oceans ensures the survival of other species in that system, making them indispensable in maintaining the balance. There are many organisations around the world that strive to keep the oceans alive, mainly by protecting the marine life.
Watch as these men join forces to pull a shark washed ashore back to the sea. Apparently, these men attempted to save the shark by grabbing its tail and trying to move her body closer to the water. It is not often that we see someone risk its life to save the life of a predator. Simple act of kindness to preserve the balance of the marine ecosystem. Hurray!
