Man Toys With Great White

Don Carpenter is lucky he didn’t lose an arm or his life by getting too close to a Great White.

Don Carpenter is a very lucky man.

Lucky he didn’t lose an arm or his life by getting too close to a Great White.

The 50-year-old Texan was diving off Guadalupe Island, Mexico when 15 feet of shark bit his cage.  Rather than withdraw in fear, Carpenter leaned out and patted the apex predator.

And while this makes for some great photos, it’s not real smart.

Don’t provoke wildlife folks.

Bad things do and will happen.
