Two teens, one bull, caught in ‘bizarre’ bullfish hunt in Kanien’keg
Two teens are in custody after a wild bullfish was caught and killed by a man’s boat in Kanie’keeg, Ont.
The 16-year-old boy was in the water with his brother and friend and was trying to swim to shore when he encountered the shark, which was caught by a boat that was taking the family to a nearby beach.
The two teens were taken into custody and charged with reckless endangerment, possession of an animal in the public way, and possessing and/or operating a fish tank that was illegally.
The man who captured the shark told CBC News that he and his friends were going to take the family back to shore to have dinner, but the family decided to go fishing instead.
He said that the group was fishing with their boat when a bullfish suddenly appeared on the water and started attacking them.
“We saw it coming right over, and we had to pull the boat in.
It was the most bizarre thing,” the man said.
The fisherman, who is not named, said that he took out a rope and tried to stop the bullfish, but it went after him.
The fish had an extremely large, white dorsal fin, which is similar to a bull shark.
It also had sharp fangs and was able to bite through the rope.
The father and his son were able to swim out to the edge of the water, where the man grabbed hold of the bull, and they both jumped into the water to try to stop it.
The young man was taken to hospital, where he was treated for bite and claw injuries.
The father is currently being treated for a broken finger and a laceration to his hand.
“I had to call 911 for help because it looked like my hand was going to be sliced open,” the father said.
A police spokesperson said that no charges have been laid yet.
