Shark in Shark

Scientists from the ORB LAB were trying to catch sharks that has previously been tagged. They caught a 3-foot dogfish shark first, and when they started to reel it in, the dogfish became bait for a huge sand tiger shark! The larger shark had been tagged previously, and was examined, measured, and released. The dogfish, of course, was not so lucky. Link -via Geekologie

Pretty common for sharks to strike on sportsmen's hooked fish as they are reeled in. They also go from boat to boat on areas where they are common in bays and inlets. Fwiw, an episode of Rivermonsters in S Africa is pretty much dedicated to this with bullshark in brackish water feeding on sportmen's catches, the sportsmen complaining about their fish 'getting away' when actually they are eaten when fighting in distress.
