A citizen flagged down the deputies of the Marine Unit to inform them of a shark caught in a crab trap. The deputies found the trapped creature and went into action to save the shark. There was a hook stuck in the shark’s mouth. Getting the hook out of the mouth was not the way to solve this situation. So, one of the deputies used a multi-tool and cut the hook as close as possible the shark’s mouth. That worked and the shark swam away with a new lip piercing! The deputies estimated that this beast was around six feet long.
Check out the body cam footage of the rescue:
