Man Attempts To Wrestle Nine Foot Shark Before It Bites Chunk Out Of His Leg
A bloke, who can only be described as an idiot, got a chunk taken out of his leg by a shark after attempting to 'rope' it like a cowboy.
Josh 'Ferrett' Neille was filmed jumping into 'shark and croc-infested waters' in northern Australia in the bizarre video.
As you can see, his friends laugh as he attempts to wrestle the nine foot lemon shark.
However, they quickly jump to his aid when he shouts: "Ahhh, it bit me."
Josh said: "Just wanted to land the 9ft shark, so armed with a rope I dived into the shark and croc-infested waters in remote far North Queensland and tried to wrestle it to the boat and tail rope it," reports The Mirror.

"After a battle for 15 seconds I found myself locked in the Sharks jaws as it thrashed a chunk from the top of my right thigh.
"I was lucky not to lose my sea cucumber instead."
He continued: "It was a quick and regrettable decision that I realise was a stupid move, however, the plan was to release the shark without having to gaff or kill the large shark by tail roping it.
"This was unfortunate not to be so in the end. Thanks to the staff at the Weipa Hospital. They were very helpful."
Judging by the photos, he and his friends managed to catch, and subsequently kill, the shark. Yeah, I think he's a bit of an arse too.
Hopefully he's learnt his lesson. But for some reason, I really don't think he has.
