There are many species of sharks and most of them are so small they couldn't really be much of a threat to a human. If this was a big-ass shark like a great white or a hammerhead then he's a badass. If it was the size of a cat like many sharks, no big deal.

I am betting this was in waist deep water and the foot was about 4 ft long or so. Even still he punched it in the face. That is awesome. Brave too, because say the shark gets pissed off and comes back at him. His balls are at surface level and his legs make easy targets. Regardless of the shark's size, that would be a painful afternoon. I would probably do that for my dog, but I would never be put in that situation because I got an english bulldog and I don't think she can even swim. She never goes in the pond at least.

Also, I used to go out with my uncles and stuff in the swamps in Louisiana and catch gators. You would be surprised at how strong something so small can be.

I think humans are some of the weakest animals (pound-for-pound).

Seriously?
Dude the dog was called Jake. You would have dived in to the shark infested sea to rescue our Jake.

Sounds pretty badass. There have been people in a sharks mouth that knew enough to punch it in the eye or nose to get it to release. So remember kids, if you ever end up in the mouth of a shark punch it in the eyes, nose, or start ripping at it's gills.

thats some good advice, hopefully if i ever end up in a sharks mouth i dont panic and i remember that...but thats why i dont go into the ocean, me and the sharks have an inderstanding, i dont go in the ocean, and they dont come on land. i kinda like it that way.

Damn right, to be fair though if there was a shark in P'wick beach it would probably be heavily mutated from all the sewage and shit in there which could never be good. What I meant though was that I think respect should be given to the guy regardless of what type of shark it was, and it more than likely wasn't the size of a cat since it had most of the dog in it's mouth when it was punched in the face.

either way you got your self a tough ass shark. And did I mention it was a damn shark. This guy punched a shark. He said he dove in and drove his fist into him. I just imagine this perfect form dive with one arm stretched out in front as he lands on the shark in the water. Probably scared the hell out of the shark more then it hurt.

Also he said his dog screamed loudly. I am betting that was him.
Personally, I envisage it as Shogun's missile punch to Overeem.. I would love for someone to photoshop Shogun missile punching a shark in the water!

Are you ****ing kidding me? You should be impressed that the dude punched a SHARK in the face to save his dog's life. The Shark obviously must have been a decent size if it was practically able to suck the dog into its jaws. I believe the guy said his dog "disappeared" into the shark's mouth.

Some people are impossible to impress lol.

Nah. I'll stick with trying to slap on a triangle choke with my stumps, but thanks anyway.

I'm reporting him for animal cruelty. I heard it was a dogfish.

If it was my older dog being attack I would punch the shark. If it was my recent dog I would run for my life.
