Two men save shark from choking on moose

» by in: Canada

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?

You can thank Fox News for the headline of this post. It might be the headline of the year.

    A great white shark in the Great White North saved by great white Canadians?

    The trifecta is complete.

    Were they listening to Great White?

    As seen by AFP:

    Canadians Starve Endangered Species! Film at 11!

    Two angry white men from an upper class neighborhood in (name emended) interrupted the innocent creature of Gaia while it was feeding and chased it away.

    It is not known if they were Republicans or Catholics; but the local PETA spokesperson described the scene as horrific and claimed the two men had even killed a moose in the process.

    You know you’re at the top of the food chain when you’re saving a shark, chokin on a moose.

    BTW, shouldn’t we be bashing the barbarous denizens of New Zealand’s Western Island about now?

    4. If you like the moose you’re choking on, you can keep the moose you’re choking.
