Newfoundland Shark Eats Moose! [VIDEO]

Hey Rocky, want to go for a swim?

Two Canadian men got a little more than they bargained for when they found a shark on the shore in Newfoundland.  Derrick Chaulk was driving along the harbor side in Norris Arm North when he came across what he thought was a beached whale. It turned out to be an eight foot long shark.

Chaulk noticed something hanging out of the sharks mouth.  That turned out to be a big piece of moose hide, fur and all.

Chaulk explained that a little further down the shore people clean and gut moose and then throw the discarded parts into the water. Sharks like the one found will go for long periods of time without food, so when it finds something like a moose carcass, it will gorge itself to near suffocation.

Chaulk was quickly joined by a friend on the shore bank, and the two tugged on the moose carcass until it came out of the shark’s mouth.  The two then tied a rope around the shark’s tail and pulled and pushed for awhile until they got the big fish into the water.  The shark then lay in the water for a few minutes and then according to the article on the CBC website, Chaulk said, “All of a sudden, the water started coming out of his gills and he started breathing”! The animal stayed in shallow water for about thirty minutes and then swam out to sea.

“There was a few people up on the bank watching and once that shark swam out and lifted his tail, and then swam all the way out, everybody just clapped,” said Chaulk.

“It was a good feeling to see that shark swim out, knowing that you saved his life.”
