The severed head of a great white shark has washed up on Pilot Bay beach in Tauranga, New Zealand. White Shark Conservation Trust later shared a gruesome picture of the dismembered shark.

“This act is illegal on a number of accounts [including] killing of a protected species and being in possession of parts of a white shark. These are prosecutable offences, and we urge anyone who knows anything about this to report their information to DOC or MPI”, the trust said on its official Facebook page.
