Fisherman Performs C-section on Shark, Rescues 98 Pups







A fisherman in Australia rescued 98 shark pups after carrying out a caesarean section on a pregnant female shark that he caught.


In a Facebook post, Mathew Orlov shared a video showing him slicing into the shark with a knife and removing dozens of pups from inside it, counting aloud as he cut them free.

The incident happened off the coast of Barwon Heads in Victoria state.

Orlov claimed the shark had been mauled by another shark before he reeled it in.

He then saw that the shark’s stomach was moving, and so cut it open to save the pups inside.

Orlov subsequently cooked the shark for his family to eat, the report added.
