Shark bites woman’s hand and drags her into water after she tries to feed it

How good are sharks! The undisputed kings of the oceans have struck fear into the hearts of fish and humans for thousands of years. And for good reason too. The Great White Shark is renowned for taking surfers off their boards without a second thought. The below clip comes from Western Australia, which is well-known shark territory. And whilst it’s not a Great White that’s featured, the old Tawny Nurse is another cruel bitch!

So the young lass that’s featured in this video is ‘Melissa’. She’s a Perth local who’s been granted two tickets aboard a friend’s yacht, the lucky thing! They’ve spent the last few days cruising up the bloody beautiful coast of Western Australia making it as far as Dugong Bay – the home of the sea cow. Dropping anchor, the party were blessed to be greeted by the local marine life.

Tawny nurse sharks are known to be pretty placid creatures. They are easy to dive with and even described as friendly f*ckers! So it comes as no surprise that the party decided to give the nice sharkies a little feed. Poor old Mel was last to go and like with all horror movies, that is generally when the deep poop comes along!

Placing her hand into the water with some tasty morsels for old ‘Nursey’, Mel was originally snubbed for a bite. Whilst we originally think the shark has had enough to eat for now, we quickly learn that he’s just after something a bit more substantial. He flicks around and hones in, coming in for a bite. Before you know it, he takes poor Mel’s index finger in the gob and starts chomping on without giving a single f*ck!

Obviously Mel is pretty beside herself and tries to shake the thug of a shark loose, but the bastard has latched on and rips skin and tendons whilst dragging the woman into the water!

What a bloody ungrateful bastard, after the humans have spent the last 20 minutes feeding him. It turns out, poor Mel suffered a nasty fracture and a torn ligament in the exchange, whilst the shark swam away unscathed, but with a fresh taste for human blood.

Despite the bastard act, Mel was remorseful, saying:

“It’s not the shark’s fault at all, but it could have been a lot worse,”

“This is not a shark attack, this is just a blonde doing a stupid thing.

“I’m not a shark victim .. I have full respect for sharks, I think they’re incredible. I’ve always had the opinion that when you’re in the water, they’re top of the food chain, it’s their domain.

“We’re not meant to be in the water if we were we’d have gills.”
