Australian Mom Wrestles Shark Back into Ocean With Her Bare Hands

The brave agent'herded the shark into shallow water and then bent over to pick it

She chose to take matters into own hands to save Port Jackson shark, choosing to simply pick it up and throw it back in the ocean.

"Hatheier told the ABC the shark was pretty distressed and bumping into things" so she thought she would try to catch him. Huge cheers could be heard in the background as she succeeded in lifting the shark up and threw it back into the sea.

Unlike other sharks, their teeth are small and blunt, to grind the shells of molluscs they can feed on after sucking in water and sand from the ocean floor and blowing the waste out their gills. She isn't sure if the shark was indeed a Port Jackson or another type.

Hamas and Fatah have reached a reconciliation agreement in Cairo , Reuters reports citing the Palestinian Information Centre. MK Tzipi Livni called the reconciliation talks in Cairo "an opportunity for change", but also called on Hamas to disarm.

The incident was filmed by one of Hatheier's daughters and uploaded to the Facebook page of the real estate company where she works. He was only about a meter long. She does not hesitate to seize the animal, a nurse shark, a species known to be harmless. "I was feeling sorry for him", she said.

"I herded him into the shallows and then I just got him with my knees, with his fins, and threw him back and saved him", she told Channel Nine's Today show. The real estate agent went down to the pool with her kids and said it was easy to spot the shark swimming around.

Hatheier said she made sure to grab it around the neck so it couldn't swing around and bite her, The Sydney Morning Herald reported. She added: "He wasn't that heavy but his skin was very rough, like sandpaper".
