A big shark of an unidentified species attacked the boat of fishermen in Antalya. In one hour of pursuit, she ate all their catch and damaged the engine of the boat with her teeth. One of the fishermen on board the boat filmed a video of what was happening and posted it on social networks, according to the Turkish portal Ensonhaber.
The incident took place on Friday afternoon, May 12, three kilometers from the coast of Konyaalti, which is popular among holidaymakers from Russia and is very crowded. The fisherman put his feet in the water to cool off when he noticed a predator that rose to the surface and began to move directly towards him. The man managed to dodge in time and climb back into the boat, ironically addressing the guest with the words: “Welcome.” “I thought she would bite my leg,” he later added.
However, the animal did not calm down on this and continued to attack the baited rods, and then she liked the motor: the shark bit him too. The fisherman, along with his friends in the boat, experienced fear, because. it was clear that the predator would not leave just like that. The confrontation continued for an hour, during which time the fisherman repeatedly tried to drive the hungry creature away from the ship with the word “shoo”, throwing the previously caught fish into the water in the hope that the animal would eat up and swim away. The publication cited the following comment from the Turk: “The shark bothered our boat for about an hour. She attacked the engine. I swear she bit the motor. It was some kind of maniac. I told her: “Shoosh.” It was very embarrassing and scary. Goosebumps ran on the skin. Because of her, I was left without a fish.”
The fisherman suggested that the shark surfaced due to hunger, pain or heat. According to an eyewitness, representatives of this species live at a depth of about 200 meters.
