Great White Jumps Into Researchers Ship

| Filed under: Scary!Shark

Researchers observing great white sharks on South Africa's Cape Coast ended up slightly closer to their subject than they probably hoped.

The team of scientists from Oceans Research was conducting a shark population study on Monday in the waters off Seal Island.

Out of nowhere a nine-foot, half-ton monster white shark breached out of the water from the side of the boat hovering, literally, over the crew member who was chumming (throwing food bait) on the port side.

The shark started flailing across the vessel, destroying equipment and struggling to return to the water.

Researchers used a hose to keep the shark hydrated during the hour-long period before rescue workers could attend to the crew and return the shark to the water using ropes and a crane.

Was the shark just curious? Or was this a stunt for the approaching Shark Week??
