Australian Mom Wrestles Shark Back into Ocean With Her Bare Hands

Australian Mom Wrestles Shark Back into Ocean With Her Bare Hands

"Our in-house Shark wrangler Melissa Hatheier wrestling a shark out of Oak Park Rock Pool yesterday morning!"

Melissa Hatheier got a call from her mother who said a shark was swimming in the rock pool that she frequents, which is right beside the ocean in Cronulla, a suburb of Sydney, Australia.

She amazed onlookers by swimming alongside it before calmly lifting it out the pool, over and wall and dropping it into the sea. "I saw it and it was just a little Port Jackson so I just thought I should chuck him out".

The incident happened in Cronulla, south of Sydney in New South Wales, and was captured on video before with it posted on Cronulla Real Estate's Facebook page.

Clearly not one to mess around, she follows the animal, she wraps her arms around it and hoists it out of the pool and back into open water. He was only about a meter long. I just thought I would try and catch him.

"Everyone was saying, 'What do we do?' Mum even rang triple zero and the police came. It's a pretty spot, and I just might bump into a shark, then LIFT IT OVER MY HEAD WITH MY BARE HANDS!"

"I wasn't scared. I was just thinking he was trapped in this rock pool and I needed to help him out. I then grabbed him around the neck so he couldn't swing around and bite me". She chose to catch the shark in the shallows so she could get ahold of it. She added: "He wasn't that heavy but his skin was very rough, like sandpaper".
