  SHARK WEEK

WATCH: Man Wrestles 7-Foot Shark, Wins Our Hearts

There once was a man from Nantucket…and his name is Elliot Sudal, a hottie fisherman who was captured wrestling a 7-foot shark ashore.

The 24-year-old said it took about 45 minutes to reel the shark in, but once he had it Sudal just took some quick pics with it before letting it go back into the wild.

“I always let them go. I’m not trying to hurt the sharks,” Sudal told CNN. Since the video went viral, Sudal’s been bombarded by overtures from strange women –  as well as criticism for his fishing methods. But Sudal, who has a degree in environmental science (sigh), supports conservation efforts.

“I just played around with this guy,” he said. “I love the feeling — it’s like a connection with the animal.”

Yeah…excuse us, but we’ve got some swimming along Cape Cod to do. Hopefully we’ll be able to make a connection with him too.

      What a horrible way to treat an animal and all for some unnecessary “fun” and show-off.
      One needs to respect those majestic animals and not stress them out for nothing. Bad
      decision making.

      that was a really unfair fight, what with the shark being out of its element: the tornado.

      And people wonder why sharks eat us.

      This Sudal guy sounds like a bit of a douche.

      That is just cruelty for the sake of cruelty.

      Why the ‘sigh’ after declaring his degree as Environmental Science? That he would want to do something to help fix the issues involving climate should be held in high esteem, not contempt as it reads.

      Are you fucking kidding me? I hope he loses an arm or maybe something further south.

      The headline should read “Man with small penis steroid shrunken scrotum” over compensates by attacking a shark.

      Elliot Su-ici-dal, How did you remove the barbed fish hook from the sharks mouth? Is that shark going to have a souvenir from your tete a tete?

      Lets see. How would he feel if he was hooked and dragged underwater for 45 minutes. It’s not that he was being hurt, just played around with before being let go. Douchbag.

      Exactly. Lets put a treble hook in your mouth and drag you around for 45
      minutes and then wrestle you so it can go on Youtube. Way to go “sport”.

      Wow….This is by far the most fucking ignorant bit of drivel ever posted on this site. Whatever twat spit this crap out is pretty assuming to think that most gay men would think this sort of animal cruelty is hot, sexy or attractive in any way. And the last paragraph is so juvenile.
      What next, a video of that marine who threw the puppy off a mountain while laughing?

      Your concept of sexy is fucked up. But in addition to everything that is wrong….it is simply lame.

      Okay. We have two Harleys here. I am Harley #13. Harley #17 is an imposter. I have had the Harley tag for 3 years and I did NOT post #17.

      This is a disgusting display of a testosterone driven idiosyncrasy if I have ever seen one.
      What a down right stupid ridiculous way to have so called “fun”.

      F**ng idiot!..
