A fisherman caught a bull shark during a catch-and-release trip off the Florida coast and noticed the animal failed to swim away after it was unhooked. In an incredible display of courage and empathy for the predator, the man jumps into the water to revive the bull shark. His friends on the boat caught the event on video

The band of fishing enthusiasts were enjoying an adventure with Gasparilla Big Game, a sports fishing charger service that hosts catch-and-release fishing trips. When the released bull shark could not swim away, the fisherman decided to jump into the water to aid it. The man pushed the shark forward in order to help it get water through its gills.

Bull sharks are not only known for their stocky physique and aggression, but their behavior is dangerously unpredictable as well. In fact, bull sharks are responsible for the majority of shark attacks on humans. Bull sharks find habitat in shallow waters and are rarely found in waters deeper than 100 feet. Bull sharks can thrive in both salt water and fresh water, which dramatically increases the chances for people to experience a bull shark encounter.

"He could just turn around and destroy you," warned one of the friends that were looking on from the boat. Finally, the fisherman successfully revived the bull shark and the 300-pound animal simply swam away and disappeared into the depths.

"He's good, he's good. Perfect! That was bad ***!"
