Huge Shark Repeatedly Attacks Fishermen In Canoe

A group of fishermen off the coast of Florida were out fishing for shark, but what they caught gave them more than they have bargained for. The group went out shark fishing in canoes off Key West. One of them managed to catch a bull shark and was battling with the beast in its habitat, trying to reel it in.

It seems that the fishermen had no idea the power of the marine beast, because the second that shark saw the surface, it decided to put up one hell of a fight. As soon as it reached the two vessels - which, might we say, are definitely not made for shark fishing - it starts ramming its body against the bottoms of the canoes.

The group of men can only look in horror and hope not to get overturned by the massive force of the shark’s wrath. The creature lashes from the depths of the ocean and almost tips both boats in the water. One of the fishermen even gets thrown off, but luckily lands in the adjacent canoe, instead right in the path of the bull shark’s sharp dentures. Eventually, the shark manages to unhook itself and swim away.

Even though the footage has been shot in 2015, it only just surfaced on online and the people of the Internet had a whack with it. Most of the comments are on the fishermen’s stupidity, going out for shark in no more than canoes.

What do you need to know about Bull Sharks? Even though Tiger and Great White sharks get most of the negative PR in the media, films and fishermen stories, Bull Sharks just might be the most dangerous sharks on the planet today (the sharks of today are snowflakes in comparison to the sharks that roamed the oceans in prehistoric times, mind you). They are Bull sharks are aggressive, common, in the vicinity of densely populated areas such as tropical shorelines. Also, they are most likely to attack humans. There are 69 unprovoked attacks on humans reported even though researchers believe this number is quite higher due to the lack of easily identifiable markings.

Unlike most other sharks, Bull Sharks are not bothered by brackish and freshwater and they even venture far inland through rivers and tributaries. The most notorious incident that involved these ancient predators happened in 1916 when in the course on two weeks only four people were killed shark attacks: three of the attacks occurred in a tidal river called the Matawan Creek. And this is the clue why: when Bull Sharks venture in fresh waters they have a very serious task in mind - reproduction. They leave the oceans to give birth in fresh waters which are comparatively safer for their offspring. But here, their protective instinct is not altered by the change of their surroundings. Any movement by an agent that is not considered staple food is considered a direct threat and treated as such - this is why the attacks are more common and more vicious in estuaries or deltas. So, swimmers, kayakers and all of you see loving people - beware.
