Hammerhead Shark Caught in Cape May [VIDEO]
An adorable baby Hammerhead shark was caught just off the coast in Cape May on Monday. But what happens AFTER it's caught is chilling...
As our fishing Guru, Tom P. would say, "The catch is hoppin' it's way into the shore!"
Well...yes. BUT this baby Hammerhead was caught off the coast just 10 minutes after the family had been swimming in the ocean...
THAT'S NOT THE CHILLING PART.
It wasn't just the catch that was a shock. Colleen Marie and her family who caught the pup said that the young hammerhead was injured, saying it "had a nice chunk eaten out of it," while blood could be seen coming from the shark's mouth in the video.
THAT'S NOT IT EITHER.
After the photo op, the family quickly released the shark back into the Cap May waters- only to see a larger shark fin sticking out of the waves...circling the water.
GOODBYE. I'M DONE.
If you know me, you know how I feel about sharks...LOVE to watch them on shark week, love seeing pictures of them; they're honestly fascinating. BUT otherwise, the idea of them in the waters I swim in literally scares me to the core. I'm horrified of sharks.
MORAL OF THE STORY:
There are sharks in our waters, so if you see a baby one.... RUN, far far away. Cause big mama is coming for you.
