Video: Kite Fisherman Unintentionally Demonstrates the Way Not to Release a Shark Catch

I came across this video posted earlier today of a kite fisherman in New Zealand attempting to release a bronze whaler shark after catching it at Muriwai Beach.

Judge for yourself but surely most fisherman would have dragged the fish to deeper waters as opposed to hoping the small surf would do the job.

On the positive side, the fisherman continues to move the small shark into the surf and ultimately, it appears the shark is able to swim to deeper waters.  But it was a bit painful watching it unfold.

The video was posted on Youtube by samegnz and is 6:09 in length.
