Video: Great White Circles Swimming Deer

A swimming doe interrupted a shark survey in California.

Sean Van Summeran, founder of the Pelagic Shark Research Foundation, was observing sharks near a California beach when he spotted a swimming deer.

He then found himself trying to stay between the deer and the big shark to see if he could coax the swimming doe back to shore.

You can get a good look at the shark right at the 2:13 mark:

One thing's for sure: it's hard to simultaneously steer a boat and take a video of a shark chasing a deer.

The deer never appeared to be in any serious trouble, but we weren't the ones swimming in the ocean with a great white nearby!

As hunters, we're well aware that deer are very strong in the water, so this one might've just been taking a swim.
