Great White Shark Rescued in Venice


Venice is in the international news again, this time for a baby great white shark rescue on the sands south of the Venice Pier. From MSN New Zeland:

A brave surfer has been filmed pulling a fishing hook from the mouth of a baby great white shark as it lay stranded in shallow waters on a beach in California.

The sea predator can be seen in the video flipping and snapping its teeth as a group of beachgoers surrounds it, after it became stuck on Venice Beach on Saturday morning.

Despite the creature’s violent struggle, a man is eventually able to hold it still for long enough to remove the fishing hook with his bare hands.

A group of surfers then takes hold of the young shark and leads it back into the water, where it can be seen swimming away.
