Shark-wrestlers in Merthyr Tydfil?

Serves the silly bugger right, if he'd stuck to sheep he'd have been safe.


And the shark was smaller than him, it's not as if the bloody thing would have scoffed someone whole...

Might be wrong, but I don't think that's a Dusky Shark, the colouration is wrong and the snout too long, it looks more like a blue Shark, which is odd as they are open ocean fish, thought they have been known to come close to shore.

'What am I going to do now? There’s not much call for shark-wrestlers in Merthyr Tydfil,'

Quality line.

Explanation: Officials say the shark may have entered shallow waters due to sickness

I was swimming along, minding my own business, when this effin' nutter attacked me FFS! He ran down the beach, jumped in the sea and grabbed my tail.

Jesus, I nearly shit myself - it's not the sort of thing you expect to happen on a day out at the beach..."

He was off with stress, first thing I would do is book a holiday. I believe he should get an unfair dismissal claim going.

It was patently obvious he was a tourist tho', no self respecting Ozzy would have thrown his tinny away.

I would have thought the best way to save people from a shark is not to put it back in to the water but to drag it up the beach and stick a parasol up its shitter.

I heard that Earl at the loan shark company has a nasty case of sixpences and half crowns in the nethers. The CAB at Merthryr recruited a new lone shark wrestler.

When I was scuba diving many years ago, one of the funniest experiences was a dive with Big Fred.

He was a legend in the club for being accident prone, and one day we were buddied up off Anglesey.

Bimbling along the bottom, we came across the odd Lesser Spotted Dogfish, dozing on the sand.

We used to have a bit of fun, grabbing their tails, startling them and they would form a U- shape, snapping around at us, before sulking and forming a knot, when we released them......

Now LSD's are only about 18" long, so you held them at arm's length no problems.

This particular dive, Fred's eyesight must have been a bit off, because he picked on a Bull Huss, the BIIIIIG brother.....

These weigh in at about 4ft long, so he had it at arm's length, snapping at his face, while he desperately waved it about, eyes bulging out of his mask.

I just sat there on a rock in about 15 metres, laughing like a drain......

What Ilech said ^^^.

I am sure he would have grounds to take this further. Although going to the Daily Wail won't help repair any bridges I wouldn't have thought.
