Video: Australian Spearfisherman Pokes Great White Shark
Trevor Ketchion and a friend were spearfishing off the Sunshine Coast on Sunday October 13, 2014 when they encountered a great white shark in the area.
According to 9 News, Trevor decided to confront the shark rather then waiting to see what the shark's next move was going to be. He took a breath and swam down to the shark and gave it a poke in the middle of the shark's back.
This jab from the tip of Trevor's spear appeared to be enough of a disincentive for the shark to stick around and we see it slowly swimming off.
The video was posted by Trevor and is a short 32 second in length.
