Skip to comments.West Virginia Fishermen Criticized for Using Shark’s Teeth to Open Beer (Good Job Dudes!!) :)
Posted on 08/15/2021 11:45:21 PM PDT by cba123
A video of two fishermen using the teeth of a shark on a beach as a beer opener has attracted ire on social media. “Bro, the shark just got abused. He’s trying to breathe,” wrote one commenter. The fishermen told local news it was “just a bit of fun.” The two received a warning from the game warden. They admit it wasn’t the greatest idea, but insist they did everything they could to make sure the shark was fine.

For crying out loud. :)
WV is landlocked guess they took a trip
It is however, just about the perfect example of why liberals have lost their minds.
C’mon admit it.
This is plain funny. Granted if people were regularly catching sharks to open beer cans, it (might) become an issue.
But I’ll be darned if I ever heard of anyone doing this before.
It is funny.
Shark teeth come in rows, and as the old ones fall out or are torn out during an attack, a new one from the row behind it replaces it. No harm done.
do these boys know where those shark teeth have been lately? and is the alcohol in beer enough to kill the germs?
things mothers think when boys will be boys
“He’s trying to breathe”?!
Shark Lives Matter?!
Injury directly to the teeth isn’t a concern. I can see an argument that it may injure it some other way but no more than literally every shark would at some point in its life.
A warning from the game warden is appropriate as you don’t want it normalized to the point it harasses wildlife. But I could be wrong. This isn’t my area of expertise.
Bull Shark! In … Ohio?
Yes, folks. A bull shark was recently found dead in a river in Manchester, Ohio.
The shark was found floating near the shore and seemed to be following groups of bass common in the area because of the abundance of small fish.
This bull shark was only 2 feet long and 9 inches wide, and was hit by a motor boat propeller.
Bull sharks are a territorial shark species, and unlike most shark species, are known to attack people. Bull sharks are also famous for their ability to survive in saltwater and freshwater as well as migration habits.
Since bass are known to be plentiful in this Ohio river, there is reason to believe that this is not the only shark in the area.
According to the fisherman, no other sharks have been seen so far. However, there have been reports of ducks vanishing from the river.
We may have found our culprit(s)!
Even though bull sharks are some of the most dangerous sharks to humans, we must work to protect them even as they move into uncommon areas. They keep our oceans healthy and we must respect that fact.
Bull sharks are a near-threatened species according to the IUCN Red List. Let’s hope the Ohio Department of Natural Resources can find a safe solution for bull sharks that find themselves in freshwater.
“WV is landlocked guess they took a trip”
You’ve obviously never fished the New River in WV. You can catch anything in that river! Even things you need to get shots for.
I caught a 1973 AMC Gremlin...but had to throw it back because it was undersized...and ugly.
The bull shark is one of the rare salt water species that can thrive in fresh water. The "man-eating" sharks of (freshwater) Lake Nicaragua are bull sharks. They've been found in the Mississippi (at least) as far upstream as St Louis.
They also have the highest testosterone levels of any animal. Their continuous/natural level is even higher than a African bull elephant when it's "in musth." Which is why they're regarded as the most dangerous of sharks (except when they've washed up on shore and are doing an impersonation of a church key).
