Aren’t Canadians great or what.
Two quick-thinking men on Newfoundland’s northeast coast managed to save a Greenland shark from choking to death on a large piece of moose hide this past weekend.
Derrick Chaulk said he was driving down a road by the harbour in Norris Arm North this past Saturday when he saw what he thought was a beached whale.
When Chaulk went closer to investigate, he realized it was a shark, which he estimated was about 2.5 metres long, and weighed about 115 kg.
The animal was still alive and had a large chunk of moose hide protruding from its mouth.
“It [the moose] had the fur and all the liner on it — it was about two feet long, maybe.”
Two-part rescue effort
Chaulk said another local man, Jeremy Ball, arrived on the scene and starting pulling on the moose chunk.

They didn’t pull out a Louisiana license plate too by any chance?
