A shark bite story with a twist: A dog bites shark

If you ever find yourself in the middle of the ocean surrounded by sharks, your chances of surviving will be greatly enhanced if man's best friend is swimming alongside you.

And here is why:

Yes, that's a dog taking a bite out of the tail of an unknown species of shark, presumably somewhere off Australia, since the gentleman who posted it on YouTube is from Down Under. The video has gone viral since being posted last month, with more than 1.3 million hits.

And why not? Everybody loves dogs. And everybody loves sharks. But who'd ever guess that when the two met the outcome would be so one-sided to the canine's side? Certainly not the videographer.

"He's giving him a bite, the dog's biting the shark!" the videographer says. "The dog is under the water ... What the hell? That is unbelievable."

Or is it? Apparently, dogs like to attack sharks, as evidenced from a dog jumping into the water to attack a shark hooked by a fisherman in this video, which has attracted over 27.5 million views.
