In Australia, sometimes you’ve got to pick a shark out of a pool

Australia might have a lot of sharks, but we try not to mess with them.

Not so for Melissa Hatheier from Sydney, Australia, who picked up a one-metre shark from a rock pool and placed it back into the ocean.

The video was posted to the Cronulla Real Estate Facebook page on Tuesday, which is a kind of a weird way to promote houses, but you know what, this is Australia after all.

“Our in house Shark Wrangler Melissa Hatheier wrestling a shark out of Oak Park Rock Pool yesterday morning! Nice work Mel,” reads the Facebook caption.

“I was just trying to catch a little shark,” Hatheier told the St George and Sutherland Shire Leader. “If it had big teeth I wouldn’t have done it.”

Hatheier told the newspaper the shark was grabbed by the neck to ensure it wouldn’t bite her, and that it was fortunately not too heavy. She then threw the shark into the ocean, watching it swim away.

Pretty wild.
