"[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.
