So my day started out like every other weekend. Out on the water, searching for halibut, and possibly a WSB still hanging around the area. Never found any. Did see a school of bonito so I was trolling for them at the time when all of this madness began. At 1:03 in the video I felt a bump to the back of my kayak and you notice I turn to see what it was. Saw nothing so I looked right. Nothing. Then felt the bump again and turned back to the left to see this hammerhead who looked like he meant business. He hits my kayak 1 more time, which you can clearly see, and thats when I decided I needed to do something about the situation. I knew that the only way I was gonna be in real danger was if I was in the water. And I also knew as long as the shark didn't hit my kayak anymore, there's no way I would be in the water. So I chose to use my paddle to keep him away from my kayak. I had other options. There was a 3" knife in the compartment right next to me. And a rather oversized gaff with a 3 foot handle right behind me. Both of which I considered during the event but I preferred to not seriously hurt the shark if I didn't have to. Theres a lot of people going around saying pretty awful things about this, and I know thats what half of the people online use the internet for anyways, but please save your words for someone who deserves them. Or don't say them at all. Theres more than enough hate in this world already. I was close to a mile from any help and by myself with no boats in the area. If I had been knocked in the water and was splashing around, theres a great chance the shark would have come up and bit me to see if I was food. One good bite from those teeth, that far away from any help, I almost surely would have bled out. So I did what I felt necessary to defend myself. Please don't come on here and tell me how I shouldn't have been in their natural environment. This planet belongs to every living thing on it and we all have the right to go wherever we want. Except maybe not North Korea. I wouldn't recommend that. If we aren't allowed in a predators natural environment then we better all pack up and move into outer space. Because every square inch of this planet is a predators natural environment. Don't tell me hammerheads are mellow and it wouldn't hurt me. Every animal, just like every human, is different. This is a shark that has NEVER, in the 30 years I've lived in this area, been seen here. So who knows what is going through its head. And I didn't wanna find out. I'm just glad that both myself and the shark got out of this with no permanent damage. And yes, I'll probably be back out there fishing in the near future. The ocean is a wild place where wild things can happen. Its a risk you need to accept before you enter the waters. But more importantly, be prepared for. Never assume things are gonna go the way you expect out there because your plans can be changed at any minute. We must respect the ocean and share the ocean. Its not ours. Its not theirs. Its all of ours and we all depend on its health for our survival. To use this video in a commercial player or broadcast, please email email@example.com.
Update: Plaintiff's Depositions are scheduled for October 18, 2018.

As of July 14, 2018, it is still working its way through the slow legal system, with government lawyers dragging things out as long as possible. We will update when possible. Here are a couple court documents: http://sharkonline.org/images/Documents/nystatecomplaint.pdf http://sharkonline.org/images/Documents/nywaynecocomplaint.pdf Depositions scheduled for May, 2018 were put off because the government claimed it couldn't read our video files. Interesting, as everyone else including our lawyers can read them... The SHARK team appreciates those commenters who have a grasp of the US Constitution, and the vital rights it bestows on our citizens. Brave Americans have died to preserve and defend these rights, and it is tragic that so many people are not only unaware of their rights, but moreover are willing to give them up, and even insist that others do the same. The Constitution gives Americans the opportunity to stand, but standing requires a spine - something quite a number of people lack today. We will continue to stand strong with other proud Americans. November 13, 2016, a SHARK team uses an Angel drone to get an aerial view of Marshall Farms, a company in North Rose, New York that raises beagles, ferrets and other animals for research. Although absolutely no laws were broken, police made an illegal traffic stop that lasted more than an hour. The bullying and incompetence is hard to believe. Per the ACLU: Police may stop and briefly detain you only if there is reasonable suspicion that you committed, are committing or are about to commit a crime. The police lost their credibility, their dignity, and any legitimacy by selling out to a company that sells animals for research. Shame on the New York State Police and the Wayne County Sheriff's Department. We are in the process of reviewing our legal options, and will provide updates as decisions are made. Please email both law enforcement agencies about how their officers acted. Please be polite, and please let us know if you get a response: New York State Police: FIELDCMD@troopers.ny.gov IAFFAIRS@troopers.ny.gov Wayne County Sheriff: Sheriff Barry Virts firstname.lastname@example.org SHARK has set up a "Go Fund Me" Account to help with our travel and legal expenses.

While we very much appreciate the supportive comments many people have left, we ask you to consider that threats against police officers is not the way to go. While SHARK will stand against bad cops, we do not wish them harm - we only wish to get rid of the bad cops, so the good police can do their jobs. Harming others is what we are trying to end, so let's not threaten even those with whom we very much disagree. We certainly understand the emotion, having seen so much corruption firsthand, but violence is not the answer.
