This video, showing a man dragging a shark back out to sea by its tail, has gone viral.

The footage was taken a couple of years ago on a beach at Seaspray in Victoria, Australia. It shows Shane Cox pulling the beached shark back into the water by its tail.

According to a report in News Ltd., Mr Cox had been fishing earlier in the day when he accidentally caught what he says was a Great white shark. It later washed up on the beach with the hook still attached. He managed to remove the hook and then dragged it back into the ocean where it swam away.

The YouTube video has had over two million hits.
