Here’s your local “Shark Week” story. Charter boat Capt. Rick Caton pulled a shark aboard his boat off Cape Hatteras, only to watch it instantly clamp down on his calf.
The below video shows that a shark is gonna bite ya even when not in the water.
Caton is seen going from experienced angler to screaming bite victim in a split second. “It got me, it got me,” he screams. “Get me a knife. Get me a knife.” Turns out his friends got the shark off of him, and he ended up getting 7 stitches…oh and he went back out to fish the next day!
