He's going to need a bigger bite.

According to CBC.ca, two Newfoundland men saved a shark from choking on a moose.

Derrick Chaulk was driving by the Norris Arm North harbor and thought he saw a beached whale. But when he went closer to investigate, Chaulk realized it was a Greenland shark.And it was choking.

"[The moose] had the fur and all the liner on it -- it was about 2 feet long, maybe," Chaulk said. 

Chaulk and another man, Jeremy Ball, started pulling on the moose, CBS.ca reported. 

"A couple yanks and it just came right out," he said.

Chaulk and Ball then pushed the shark back into the water. After being still for a few minutes, water starting coming off the shark's gills and it headed back out to sea.

"It was a good feeling to see that shark swim out, knowing that you saved his life," Chaulk said. "There was a few people up on the bank watching and once that shark swam out and lifted his tail, and then swam all the way out, everybody just clapped."

Greenland sharks are rarely seen on the northeast coast of Newfoundland, CBC.ca reported.
