HOLY MOTHER OF JAWS!
Now, this country has birthed some fearlessly majestic bastards in its time, but we might have a new contender for the ‘Not Afraid To Die, Ay‘ award.
That would be Dan Hoey, who is the owner and operator of Salty Dog Charters in Port Fairy, Victoria.
On one of his charters, Hoey realised that an extremely fucking large white pointer shark had started to circle the boat. A real big ‘un. He reckons the shark was 5.5 metres, plus he believes it was pregnant.
It was even trying to take some chomps into the boat, he said:
“This big beast turned up and wouldn’t leave us alone. [It] nearly took a chunk out of my Yamaha motors, leaving a few small dents and scratches.”
So, he did what any absolute maniac would do – he shoved it away with a garden broom.
Hoey told press,
“I’ve seen sharks in the past and they’ve been quite stand-offish but this one was very fired up.
She was quite aggravated, I think she was attracted to the outboard motor and propeller.”
The video is accompanied by the caption, “What a BIG BEAST! Sorry about the language. Great to see but I’m glad we weren’t in a 10 feet tinny…”.
Ahhhh…. ‘STRAYA. Bless.
