Australian Fisherman performs C-SECTION on dead shark and releases 98 pups into the sea

It’s not often that a fisherman becomes an Obstetrician, but a quick-thinking Australian fisherman jumped to the challenge when he discovered 98  living pups inside a dead shark that he reeled in.

Mathew Orlov was fishing off the coast of Victoria, Australia when he reeled in a Broadnose sevengill shark. When he pulled the shark onto the deck, he realized it had been fatally wounded by another predator. The dead shark laid on deck, with at least seven bite marks from another shark when all of a sudden he witnessed the belly of the shark start to move.

He quickly grabbed his knife and started performing an impromptu c-section. For nine minutes he pulled pup after pup out of the dead mother shark, saving them and returning 98 young sharks to the sea.

Cutting the Shark out

Of course, the liberal dumb fucks of the world instantly started attacking the fisherman online, claiming that he should have thrown the shark back or not tried to catch it at all.

Mathew tells his story:

“As soon as she was on the boat we saw the seven bite marks from another shark. I could feel through the line when she was being attacked. As soon as we pulled it up, I knew was mauled by another shark.

When I saw the belly moving, instinct kicked in. I’ve never done anything like this before, but I’ve fishing long enough to know we needed to get the pups out as quickly as possible.

It was a very overwhelming feeling when they started popping out; I got this adrenaline rush. I was just dumbfounded there was so many, we counted 98.”

Of course, the liberal dumb fucks of the world instantly started attacking the fisherman online, claiming that he should have thrown the shark back or not tried to catch it at all.

Mathew said: ‘As a fisherman, I catch fish to eat. The meat from this shark fed lots of my family members. I love the ocean and respect they’re an important part of the ecosystem. I think the pup’s chance of survival is high – they swam off quite healthily.”

Since sharks do not care for their babies after they are born, they will likely be just fine and stand the same chance of survival had the mother left them, to begin with.
