Man spotted with dead shark attached to his bumper

A fisherman has sparked outrage after he was spotted driving through town with a shark attached to his bumper.

A man, who is yet to be identified, has come under fire after he was recorded whizzing through Safety Bay, a suburb of Perth, in Western Australia with a dead tiger shark strapped to the bonnet of his white pick-up truck.

Michelle Robinson was clearly angered by the footage, which has been uploaded to Facebook, and vented: "Disgusting. Tiger shark or Bengal tiger no difference, the mindless slaughter of a beautiful animal is tantamount to murder."

Sebastian Robert Davis added: "Wow just found out they're protected and this is an over sized kill."

The fisherman is being investigated by law enforcement officers and could face being fined up to £2,500 as, according to the Western Australian Government, there is a statewide ban on catching and killing sharks of a particular size, without the appropriate licence.
