A great white shark recently found itself stranded on a beach in Chatham, Massachusetts after it tried to catch some seagulls along the shore. But rather than run away in terror, the cautious beachgoers around it helped save the predator’s life.
The seven-and-a-half-foot juvenile shark was kept alive after various people began dumping buckets of water on it until conservation officers arrived at the scene. Once they showed up, a harbour master was able to attach a rope to the beached animal, and, with some help, dragged it back into the sea.
That’s when things started to look bleak.
When the shark was first dragged into the water to the sound of cheering along the shore, it didn’t really move at first. Eventually, officers held the shark underwater alongside their boat as it moved, to help push water through its gills.
And that, friends, is a recipe for a free shark. Now the little rascal can go wreak havoc on all the smaller fish of the undersea world.
