Its Shark WEEK!!!!!!!
Just when you thought it was safe to go back onto basic cable, Shark Week returns this week to the Discovery Channel.
In honor of Discovery’s celebration of all things shark, here are some of the oddest and most surprising shark encounters to make the news in the first half of 2019.
Doug Nelson, who fishing with his son and others aboard a Massachusetts boat earlier this month, captured video of the moment a giant shark jumped out of the water to steal a fish from the end of a boy’s line.
The Atlantic White Shark Conservancy, which tweeted the footage, confirmed the predator in the video was a great white shark.
The month of July started with a strange incident at Florida’s Daytona Beach, where numerous shark sightings were reported on the first of the month.
A drone flying over the beach captured video of sharks weaving between swimmers and coming within a few feet of the humans, but no attacks were reported.
