Tiger Shark Steals Camera From FilmmakerJul-30-2012
Never turn your back on a shark. Not necessarily because it'll eat you, but it might steal your gear. And really, who's gonna try and stop it?
Officer, I'd like to report a theft in progress of expensive camera gear. Wait a minute, the perpetrator's already getting away. Somebody arrest that shark! Producer George Schellenger says, "But we've known this shark for several years. Her name is Emma. She's 14-feet long.
George Schellenger should know. He's the one shooting the theft which occurred at tiger beach in the Bahamas, known for its tiger sharks. The divers were shooting a documentary called shark obsession when Emma swiped their gear, leaving the dive master in her wake.
Maybe the shark's just sick of all the annoying underwater paparazzi, always sticking cameras in her face, never giving her credit on shark week.
The gear was worth about $15,000 and it weighed about 30 pounds, sort of a heavy snack. So heavy Emma dropped it within a hundred feet or so and the dive master was able to recover it, undamaged.
