|Great white killed in Mahdia, Tunisia|
The video description was in broken English and it was difficult to understand. But from what we can decipher, the shark weighed 3,000 pounds and was 13 feet (4 meters) in length.
The shark had been swimming 400 meters from shore in depths no greater than 7 meters and was in an area with floating fish cages being used to fatten blue fin tuna. The cage operators felt the shark was a threat and subsequently, it was caught, killed and taken to market to be sold.
