Gonna need a bigger boat: Shark encounters caught on tape

And if sharks aren’t your thing, we have some kitten and puppy attacks that have to be seen to be believed…

DISCOVERY CHANNEL’S INFAMOUS Shark Week is looming from today, with some of the most jaw-dropping (‘Jaws’-dropping?) footage of these amazing creatures.

To celebrate, we’ve collected some entertaining shark videos from around the internet. We’ve even included some shark sightings around Ireland.
