Hell, if they’re going after sharks now what’s to keep them from chomping humans?

The unlucky salmon shark was pictured in Kodiak, Alaska, being pounced on and then snapped up by a steller sea lion in the harbor.

The dramatic images of the moment were captured by wildlife photographer Fred O’Hearn and it is thought to be the only documented sighting of a sea lion eating a shark.

And with just seconds to spare, he managed to capture the moment the sea lion sinks his teeth into the big fish.
