This shocking video shows a marine rescue team wrestling with – a Great White Shark.
The animal had beach-bums terrified after it washed up on Manly Beach in Sydney, Australia, the day before.
The 1.8 metre-long shark – nicknamed Fluffy – ended up at the popular tourist spot last Monday (4/11) afternoon after becoming injured.
Frightened tourists were seen running from the beach but the shark didn’t show any signs of aggression.
The animal was taken to a nearby public ocean pool to rest, before spending a night at Manly Sea Life Sanctuary aquarium.
Onlooker Tim Combley, 27, who filmed the footage of the animal being taken to the aquarium, said: “It was crazy seeing the animal move like that out of the water.
“I thought it would break free and attack. I’ve never been that close to a shark before.”
Pictures have emerged on social media of hundreds of holidaymakers watching the shark swim in the public pool – which was closed for the day.
Alex Martiniuk wrote on Twitter: “Beautiful to see such a gorgeous animal.”
Fluffy was released from a boat four kilometres off Sydney on Tuesday (12/11) afternoon.
Experts said it was very rare for an Great White to beach itself.
They said Fluffy had injuries to its lower jaw but made a swift recovery.
Great Whites – found in temperate waters all around the world - are responsible for the largest number of fatal unprovoked attacks on humans.
