A video of a dog attacking a shark posted on YouTube by an Australian man is grabbing global attention.

The footage shows two big dogs swimming in the ocean near the West Australian town of Broom, about 1,650 kilometers north of Perth.

The dogs appear to be headed into the path of the sharks without realizing, but one suddenly attacks a shark.

"The dog is biting the shark,” said Russell Hood-Penn in the voice-over as he video-taped the incident. “That is unbelievable. I’ve seen it all now.”

The Australian man placed the footage on YouTube (, where it has been viewed more than 27 million times.

The sharks were swarming the beach because there was a dead dugong waiting to be served for dinner, Hood-Penn speculates. However, it is unknown what has happened to the shark after its attack by man’s best friend.
