Shark choking on moose hide rescued in eastern Canada

AnchorageNovember 21, 2013 

How a Greenland shark got hold of a Canadian moose hide will remain a mystery, but the efforts of two Newfoundland men have apparently saved the beached 8-foot beast from its own voracious appetite, reports CBC News.

Derrick Chaulk said he was driving down a road by the harbor in Norris Arm North this past Saturday when he saw what he thought was a beached whale. 

When Chaulk went closer to investigate, he realized it was a shark. ... The animal was still alive and had a large chunk of moose hide protruding from its mouth. 

Chaulk said another local man, Jeremy Ball, arrived on the scene and starting pulling on the moose chunk.

"A couple yanks and it just came right out."
