When we witness animals suffering as a result of human negligence or as a consequence of human behavior, most of us are shocked and even furious.
But, would you go as far as to do something and save a life if put in that scenario? Would you risk your safety to help the animal?
Most individuals, on the other hand, would not. But then again, the man in this video below is nothing like most people. The video of him risking his limb to save a baby shark is gaining much attention and acclaim online, and it’s easy to understand why.
The shark was caught on a hook and attempted to breathe in the dramatic rescue scene, which was shot in South Africa. It’s clear that the shark was near death; it just needed minutes more before suffocating.
White sharks are a protected species in South Africa, and their capture is expressly prohibited by legislation. Fishers set out the gear in the area while they were fishing. The youngster shark was eventually freed after being caught unintentionally with the lines. It was able to swim back into the sea unharmed.
Take a look at the video below for a fantastic display of bravery:
