The photo of this impressively large shark has been shared on social networks. It was discovered by a man while fishing in Australia.
It almost feels like the movie Troubled Waters in which Jason Statham has to face a giant creature from the depths: a megalodon. The 2018 film summons the primal fear of man by casting the shark as a threat to a crew.
Except that this time, it is indeed reality, except for a few details. A 6 meter long shark was caught in the open sea off the Australian side . The images taken by the Internet user, Geoff Brooks, present at the time of the capture, then relayed on his Facebook account, are impressive.
We see the great tiger shark with its head caught in ropes and stranded on the fishing boat. None of the surrounding passengers is likely to fear any attack, the shark was found lifeless.
It was off Seven Mile Beach that the shark would have been found according to Geoff Brooks: ” I was told that it had been captured a little further during the weekend “, writes the Internet user under his Facebook post .
The local newspaper Northern Star recounts the testimony of Matthew, a fisherman: “ I was fishing for a hammerhead shark when this huge shark appeared and swallowed it ”. Despite this detail, it is not known what caused the death of the animal. Some claim that the shark was to be sold in a local market, while others say that it had been transported to a research center.
