Man purchases shark to eat, share with neighbors

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 22 May, 2015 - A great white shark weighing an estimated 1-ton and measuring 18-feet in length has been hoisted by crane to a Chinese neighborhood for consumption.

Qingdao is a wealthy area of China and one resident has spent a tidy sum to transport a shark into his backyard where he will skin, gut and eat it according to reports in the South China Morning Post.

The shark was privately bought by the resident, who has done this sort of thing before. He also bought a massive shark last year and shared its meat with the neighborhood, according to nearby residents.

Experts at the Qingdao Ocean and Fishery Bureau estimated that the shark had been dead for around two days.

The great white shark is the world's largest known predatory fish. Conflicting information suggests whethere they are endangered or not since little is known about this magnificent animal.
