The shark had bitten trying to lasso her angler
In Australia a shark bit a man who tried to throw her a rope. This was reported on the 9news website.com.au.
The incident occurred off the coast of Queensland. The fisherman jumped from the boat into the sea, where swam with a lemon shark with a length of 2.7 meters. He argues that it stuck fishing tackle. To free predator, the man decided to pull her on the boat. “I wanted to put the shark into the mouth of the pipe, to get hooks, and then let her go,” he explains.
When he attempted to throw over her tail rope the fish dodged and grabbed his leg. Clamping the wound on the thigh, the man climbed out of the water. Friends took the victim to the hospital on the Peninsula of Cape York in North Queensland. The shark was caught, and the meat made bait for crabs.
Lemon sharks grow up to 3.4 meters in length and weigh up to 180 pounds. They feed on fish, shellfish and birds. This species may pose a danger to humans.
In April it was reported that in New Zealand, a shark attacked a tourist from France who was surfing off the coast of Curio Bay.
