When Pike Attack

In light of the recent injury we obtained from a pike, the severity, and how quickly it happened we started to wonder: are there any stories of people being attacked by pike/musky? We have thought for a long time that with their size, power, rows of razor sharp teeth, and intrigue to eat extremely large baits if one did decide to attack a person we would surely stand no chance. How easily the pike severed the tendon in our finger reenforced this and so we did some research to find out if there are any reported incidents. Here's what we found:

"Pike Sinks Teeth Into Anglers Groin" October 2019

"Northern Pike Attacks Dog" October 2022 North Pole Alaska

"Northern Pike Attacks Water Skier" September 1999 Brecon Wales

"Pike Bites Anglers Hand While Releasing Trout" February 2014

"Pike Puts Teacher In Hospital With Bite To Hand" September 202 Cheshire England
