Gutted and beheaded shark left on Florida beach

In a case of “man bites shark,” The Palm Beach Post is reporting that beach visitors at a Lake Worth beach were greeted this morning by the sight of a shark which had apparently been reeled in and left gutted and beheaded on the beach. The shark’s head and innards left nearby the rest of the carcass along with multiple empty beer cans.

While beheading and gutting a catch is not unusual for fishermen, this is usually done to separate the inedible parts of a fish from the edible meat. In this particular case the entire shark was left on the beach, which would defeat the purpose of separating the meat of the shark from the head and entrails.
