Shark attacks? At least we don’t have to deal with that in the UK, eh?

Well this story is just a little too close to home after a diver was bitten multiple times in the sea off the coast of Cornwall.

I’m blaming global warming for this sh*t. One of the only good things about living in the UK is the safety from all deadly or threatening creatures (that and the NHS of course).

Here is the footage of the small blue sharks taking aim at the diver:

The unnamed diver who uploaded her video online said:

I have swum with blue sharks before and was super excited to have the opportunity to do it again.

It was a couple miles off the south coast of Cornwall. As soon as I was in the water this time though there was a lot of interest.

There were so many different sharks that it was difficult to keep an eye on them coming at you from all angles.

I think there were about three in particular that repeatedly bumped and barged me, some even test biting with their mouths.

They then circled the boat ladder so I couldn’t get out. Then when I got on the boat, they breached the water to bite at me too! No wonder this species are nicknamed ‘The wolves of the sea’!

Okay so it wasn’t some huge attack, but the sea ‘wolves’ had a little jab at the diver. More than she bargained for jumping into Cornish seas.

It seems Cornwall is the hub for sharks, it’s like our Australia. Anyway there was a huge group of about 20 sharks spotted there recently.

The school were papped knocking about off the coast of Penzance, and were believed to have been enticed by the warm weather.

Charles Hood, who runs Blue Sharks Cornwall, caught the amazing moment while giving punters the ‘ultimate shark adventure in Cornish waters.’

There was also a huge 9ft shark spotted swimming in a harbour in St Ives, Cornwall, prompting officials to warn the public to stay out of the water.

The massive creature was thought to be either injured, or may have lost its bearings after chasing prey.

Blue sharks are the most heavily fished shark in the world. In European waters the species is listed as Near Threatened on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.

Sharks, like any animal, are the most aggressive when pregnant. They’ve got to protect their young after all.

Disturbing footage captured the moment a scuba diver was bitten by a pissed off pregnant shark as he tries to manoeuvre it around an aquarium, or whatever. Frankly, I have no idea what this guy’s doing.

The divers get closer to the shark, with one man swimming up behind it, grabbing hold of its right fin to sound out its condition. To the surprise of the diver, the predator appears to feel threatened by his actions and give him a huge bit on the arm.

Staff immediately tend to the diver, who is seen bleeding heavily. The extent of his injuries were serious, according to MailOnline.

Stay away from sharks…and Cornwall. That’s what I’ve learned.
