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.

    Poor shark must have been terrified.

  • litper

    And how exactly was he “fighting” a shark?

  • ZeeZee

    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.

  • MikeE

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

  • niles

    farmer tan lines for the win!

  • Mr. E. Jones

    And people wonder why sharks eat us.

    This Sudal guy sounds like a bit of a douche.

  • Randy

    That is just cruelty for the sake of cruelty.

  • jerbear

    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.

  • blackberry_riot

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

  • Garpinbc

    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?

  • Harley

    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.

  • Tackle

    That’s more cowardly then macho…

  • ho

    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.

  • Harley

    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.

  • B Damion

    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!..
