article imageMan hops aboard dead whale being eaten by great white sharks

By Owen Weldon     Nov 4, 2014 in Odd News
Perth - A man from Quinns Rock, north of Perth, Australia, thought it would be a good idea to jump onto a dead whale being circled by hungry sharks.
According to Business Insider, Harrison Williams was filmed jumping from his friend's boat and swimming to the whale. The reason why he did that is because one of his buddies said it would be funny to surf the whale.
However, Williams didn't notice the great white sharks eating at the whale, according to USA Today.
Williams said his mother thinks he is an idiot, and his father isn't exactly too proud either.
The whale was floating between Rottnest and the WA coast for quite some time.
Harrison was brought back to his boat after people on another vessel alerted him about the nearby sharks.
Williams said that the whale looked like it was in distressed and he wanted to help it. He continued to say that it was clearly too late.
A spokeswoman for the Department of Parks and Wildlife said the whale was the Fremantle Port Authority's responsibility.
The spokeswoman said she doesn't expect the whale to come ashore for quite some time.
Tony Cappelluti, the regional manager for the Department of Fisheries, said that William's behavior was irresponsible, and it could have had some critical consequences.
