Soth Africa ....A Pretoria fisherman got more than he bargained for when he found himself on the receiving end of a bite from a ragged-tooth shark after hooking the creature off the beach at Cape Vidal on Tuesday evening.

Peter Willoughby returned home from a trip to the popular resort at the Greater St Lucia Wetland Park with 65 stitches after being bitten on the hand, thigh and calf.

The 25-year-old rock and surf angler was fishing with other experienced fishermen.

He was trying to unhook the 150kg shark when a wave washed the creature against him while he was waist-deep in the water and it bit him.
