The terrifying moment an adrenaline junkie had to fight off a tiger shark with a flimsy budgie cage was caught on camera.

Shaun Harrington, 27, was filmed tackling the shark with the small cage, then scrambling back on a boat off Coolangatta, Australia.

Speaking after performing the extreme cage diving stunt, he told Nine MSN his wife is not speaking to him: "I'm pretty much in the dog house. I'm thinking of renovating the dog house at the moment and putting a pool table in there."

The Daily Mail reports how the eight foot shark had been caught by a professional fisherman when Harrington jumped in the water.

The video was shot for his surfing and fishing clothing label, The Mad Hueys.
