Dog vs Shark Standoff Thrills Tourists in Bahamas

From an AP story by Danica Coto headlined “Dog vs shark standoff thrills tourists on Bahamas boat tour”:

The sight of a massive hammerhead shark was a rare treat for 32 travelers on a tour boat in the Bahamas. But then, something stranger still: A dog dove from a nearby dock to confront the sea creature.

Tourists aboard the four-hour excursion can be heard shouting and pleading with the dog to turn back. “Get out baby!” and “Stop going after it!”

The dog ignored them and paddled after the 12-foot shark, which thrashed as the two animals circled each other in transparent turquoise waters. Then the shark swam away slowly, much to the delight of the crowd.
