Andy Hales and his friend Richard Foster were on a fishing trip in South Africa’s Cape Agulhas, when Andy felt a nibble on his line. Ok, it was way more than a nibble.

Finally, after two full hours of battling the shark, the Great White tired and Andy prevailed.

Meet The Goat-Sheep Hybrid Called a "Geep"
A farmer in Ireland claims that he’s bred a rare goat-sheep hybrid. County Kildare sheep farmer, Paddy Murphy, delivered the "geep" late at night, and actually didn’t even notice until the next morning. Paddy, who only has white-faced Cheviot sheep, says he saw a goat fraternizing with his sheep early this month, but didn’t think anything of it. Geep are incredibly rare, and are normally stillborn, so Paddy’s little guy really beat the odds. Farmer Murphy is hoping to use the geep's newfound fame to do some good too. He’s started a "name the geep" contest with proceeds going to a neighbor’s sick child. We love this geep!
