Great white shark attacks shark cage, attempts to eat it



Mossel Bay in South Africa is a popular destination for shark cage divers to get up close and personal with great white sharks, but Hillary Petroski got more than she bargained for when a great white shark attempted to eat the cage she was in.

Somehow, with a shaky hand, Petroski managed to capture the scary footage of the great white shark, which she said was closer than it appears:


“The round buoy attached to the side of the cage was bent in half,” she told Jukin Media, according to GrindTV. “Some of the lining of the outside blue barrier bar was bitten through as well.

“We saw roughly eight different sharks, some multiple times, in the 30 minutes we were down. It was my first time diving with sharks and it was quite the up-close-and-personal experience!”

Fortunately, the great white shark gave up and swam away, leaving behind a few scary memories.
