Dog Bites Shark (Video)

An Australian man was traveling around his home country and was told at a particular beach there might be dogs swimming with sharks, so he decided to see for himself, and captured the following video. The dogs are not his, he merely shot and uploaded the video.

Some commenters assumed they are his dogs and questioned his sense of responsibility.

What about the sharks though – why is it acceptable for the dogs owners to allow them to harass or injure sharks in such a manner? Of course the dogs could lose a foot or worse, if the sharks attack them. Lemon sharks have only bitten humans about twenty-two times since 1580, according to Wikipedia, and no humans have ever died from their bites.

I don't think I shall watch the video: it doesn't sound right at all. I am sure I shall be upset. It sounds all wrong to me: dogs and sharks shouldn't mix, ever.
