A couple of months ago, a man was eating a lot of meat in the meat locker at his local meat market in the town of Port Macquarie, New South Wales, when the shark meat came to the table.
It was in the middle of the night, he said.
I had my steak and I’m just about to finish it, he told ABC News.
When he finished his steak, the shark caught him off guard and attacked him.
He was lucky to be alive.
“I’m just shocked, I was so scared, it was like I was in a dream,” the man said.
“I think I was just dreaming.”
The shark was about 20 centimetres long and weighed about a kilogram.
It had two front teeth, two back teeth and a long tail.
It wasn’t the first time the shark had attacked the man.
The man told police the shark was known to attack fishermen.
The shark had been caught by a fisherman last year, but was not reported to authorities because of concerns about it being a potential threat to human health.
