Video: Fishermen Catch Shark and Don't Know What to Do Next.

Caution - this video may be disturbing to some.

Fishermen off the coast of Mississippi catch what appears to be about a 3 foot shark.  Once they get it to the boat, they seem to have no idea what to do with it.

They first attempt to kill it by pinning it's head with a paddle and stabbing it but they fail.  They then try to kill it with multiple stabs to the head but again they fail to kill it.  At this point, they discuss just cutting the line and letting it go but they decide against that idea.

Again, the anglers return to the use of the blade and are finally able to dispatch the shark with multiple cuts through the gills.

Video posted on Youtube by Jon Buckner and is 6:17 in length.

[UPDATE 09/19/2014:  I now see in the video comment section that the anglers admitted they had no clue as to what to do with the shark.  They also stated that they ate the meat.]
