Shark of the Day: Cape Cod Beachgoers Save A Stuck Great White

Looks like someone didn't get enough attention during shark week.

This juvenile great white shark found her/himself beached on the friendly shores of Chatham, Massachusetts. Though the video appears at first to be a terrible vision of a doomed aquatic predator, the harbor master and tenacious beach visitors saved it.

The shark seems to place full trust in the professionalism of the do-gooders.

As they wrap the line around the shark's tail to drag it carefully back to the water, it's all like...



In the same vein, those helpers are trying to stay as far away from the many rows of teeth that would do some real damage if given the chance.

The whole affair comes merely days after the annual shark-stravaganza that is the Discovery Channel's Shark Week. Since Discovery has been arguing that sharks are pretty intelligent, we can make the assumption that this little guy loved the attention he got from last week's television event and wanted more.

Surprise of the Day: Hungry Great White Shark Steals Fisherman’s Catch

A fishing charter in New Zealand recently got to experience “Jaws” in real life.

As one of the fishermen reels in his line, he notices the fish is actually half-eaten, and just seconds later, a giant great white shark pops up to finish what he started.

“Did you see that?” he shouts.

The video was uploaded to Captain Bucko’s Fishing Charters Facebook page on March 9, and in the comments the company says it’s the first great white they’ve seen in the Bay of Islands, an area off the northern coast of the country.

Looks like they’re gonna need a bigger boat.

Just after midnight this morning, a mysterious shark corpse was found laying on the floor of a New York City subway train, with no witnesses or explanation as to how it got there. According to Gothamist, the shark seems to bear some resemblance to the baby sharks once sold in buckets on the subway last year, while some tin foil hatters speculate that this may have been some kind of bizarre viral marketing gimmick for Discovery channel's "Shark Week" series, which began on Sunday.
