Massive Great White Shark Caught Near Tunisia

Rare catch of massive great white shark off Tunisia draws criticism | A great white shark weighing 4,400 pounds was caught Wednesday morning off Sousse, Tunisia, and sold by the fisherman for . . .  about $1,500. The store that bought the shark “had to use a crane to hold it in suspension [as it was] cut to pieces under the curious gaze of customers."

Edit: See Max's comment below about the photos of a huge tiger shark also recently in the news. Their origin is uncertain.
