White shark choked to death on a sea turtle found by fishermen
A great white shark choking to death while eating a sea turtle in Japan was found by a fisherman.
The pictures demonstrate the bloodied shark pulled onto land with the ocean turtle as yet distending from its mouth.
Fishermen Greg Vella posted the photos online on Friday and clarified that the dormant shark was found made up for lost time in the mesh.
By posting photos on Facebook he said: “I was out commercial ‘Ken Ken‘ style fishing for tuna when I heard chatter on the radio that there was a white shark swimming around with a big sea turtle in its mouth”.
“ People started to joke about it, so I did not pay it any more attention. The next day, it was found dead, near the bait receivers, tangled in some netting.”
“The captains I interviewed who saw the mighty shark the day before, said it looked close to death, as it could not dislodge the giant turtle”.
“The commercial guys were bummed as white sharks do not bother their commercial fishing, and most certainly do bother the things that eat our catch.” He added.
The shark was weighing a little more than 2,000 kilograms meaning this was certainly a big shark.
