Human Head, Leg Found Inside Belly Of Tiger Shark Caught By Surigao Fishermen


” A group of fishermen here caught last week a huge tiger shark in the waters between Bohol and Camiguin islands, and found inside the shark’s belly a human head and a leg, still with half-digested flesh.

“ It was so disgusting. We can’t bear the awful smell,” said Bodoy Gorgod, 48, one of the five fishermen from Punta Bilar here who caught the shark between the waters of Bohol and Camiguin islands Wednesday last week.

  Gorgod, 48, said he had never caught a shark before with human parts inside since he started fishing at age 20.

“ We feared that the human remains may bring bad luck to us, so we opted to drop to the sea the shark’s body and what’s inside its belly,” he said. “
