YouTube user dnahoghunter recently posted the above video to demonstrate how NOT to handle a juvenile blacktip shark (Carcharhinus limbatus). The video description points out that this incident was the result of improper safety and the shark was “simply doing what nature intended.”
While the blacktip shark is generally viewed as harmless toward humans, this video shows that even small wild animals can inflict quick damage on a person, given certain circumstances.
The clip above is an edited version of the incident. The full clip can be seen here.
