YouTube user ELVIAVANES uploaded the video above today, which is described as a great white shark being rescued at California’s Venice Beach. The video description says that the juvenile shark was hooked on a rod and reel by locals. The description goes on to say that the hook was removed. Four men, including two surfers, can be seen assisting the shark back into the water at the video’s end.

The great white shark (Carcharodon carcharias) is a protected species in California waters.



  1. Good for the Venice beachers that saved that baby great white, and for the crowd encouranging them. Whether great whites are a protected species or not ,those people showed respect for life and nature. Good karma to them, and to the juvenile.
