One Huge Shark

Recordshark


Shark catch in Yarmouth Nova Scotia

Photo Copyright - Carla Allen @ The Yarmouth Vanguard



"This Mako was hooked in the mouth, only fought slightly for 15 minutes, came up along side of the boat to have a look, long enough for one of the crew to put a rope around its tail !!!

That's when the s**t hit the fan!!

The Shark took off towing the 42 foot fishing boat backwards through the water at about 7 Knots. Just like in JAWS. The boat was taking on water, the Shark would jump completely out of the water at times.

This went on for an hour before the Shark actually drowned. He weighed in at 1035 LBS"

the shark should have eaten the guy in the maroon with the stupid egoic look on his face and the guy he is talikng to,i would rather see the shark alive than those losers.

"What a stupid kill ..."

silvercrest

A complete waste of nature...

Dan

Hippies should shut the hell up. You think a shark gives a damn about preserving the human species? That thing would eat you and your children without blinking....and justifiably so. Stupid hippy, go hit a bong.

mike vonroemer

An amazing find. although poaching sharks can be contraversal its good for studys>great job guys!

tonyd

Now! that you've destroyed one of the greatest animals alive guys....now you're real men.

Now go home and kick the dog!

Every scrap of information about the 1082 lb. mako in Yarmouth, N.S. is completely wrong. Way to check out your story! For the truth see www.newenglandsharks.com/shortfin.htm

Dumb ass people forget there are more persons than there are the animals we currently hunt and kill... FOR SPORT!

So killing a shark isn't justifiable unless it's in self defense, which clearly isn't the case.

Between having the shark killed and some children I wouldn't mind if it was children, specially if they were of the dumbass who suggests people are "hippies" cause they want to preserve whatever good things still exist around, rather than destroy them.

Theresa Dutcher

What a damn shame. Living animals like that are what makes the world such a cool place. That guy should go drive a Hummer and leave the sharks alone! Macho man.

lina

ok..

Cole Kabella

Man i agree with dan u stupid tree hugers shut up its one shark thats gana make an awsome mount lol and i would much rather see it dead than a persone screw the ecosystem and all that nature crap!

cormac

Your a fucken retard, having a concern for the preservation of nature has nothing to do with being a hippy. I hope you get eaten next time you go swimming.
and learn how to spell dumbshit.

travis

Big ass shark. I would have killed it as well.

Slavs

All i can say is that is one impressive animal!

Sharks are vastly misunderstood and do not naturally attack humans. They are overfished and killed because they are perceived as dangerous. You don't see too many people freaking out and killing one of the millions of other animals that kill thousands of times more people annually than sharks do, eh?

And just a cultural update - telling someone to go hit a bong isn't witty, or even an insult. If you think being a hippy means caring about mindless destruction - then what do you call yourself?

I pray you don't call yourself normal.

What a shame. We don't see sharks this size anymore especially mako. I would leave it alone. Even the great white now are down to 15-16 footers.

We need more preservations and laws for shark hunting i.e above certain lenght for X or Y species should be left alone.

I once hooked a 14 ft tiger shark while tuna fishing and let it go. It wasa magnificent animal. Shame on people who think it's cool to kill such magnificent creatures. Self defense I agree but just to be the man, that's shameful.

Mensaman

What a waste. Why kill such a magnificent animal if he didnt threaten you? This kind of activities should be illegal. Killing cannot be categorized as a sport.

Mitchell

screw the ecosystem and all that nature crap? clearly we should be listening to this person. Absolute genius. Can't even spell person (persone). It is people like you - morons - that will see the human race die out, because you (and good old Dan the man) believe it is right to do moronic things such as the above for fun.
