Rare And Terrifying Frilled Shark Caught Off The Coast Of Victoria

 

 

 

 

” A frightening-looking and rarely-sighted frilled shark has been caught by fishermen off south-eastern Victoria.

  The pre-historic creature has over 300 needle-like teeth in 25 rows, with a head and fins similar to an eel along with a long shark-like tail.

  The frilled shark, which is believed to have existed for 80 million years and could be responsible for some ancient sea monster myths, is well known to the scientific community but rarely seen.

A trawler working in the waters near Lakes Entrance in Victoria’s Gippsland region pulled the shark from 700m deep even though the creature normally lives at a depth of about 1500m. “

Chief Of Police Apologizes After Officer Uses Taser 76-Year-Old Man

 

 

 

” At 76-years-old, Pete Vasquez of Victoria stands just 5-foot-5 and weighs 145 pounds. Now, Vasquez, a father of five and grandfather to 20 children, is at the center of a police dash cam video that is causing outrage.

  The video shows officer Nathanial Robinson of the Victoria Police Department arresting Vasquez last Thursday morning. But in the process, Robinson suddenly throws Vasquez onto the hood of his police car, pulls him to the ground and uses a Taser on him.

  Vasquez said the officer acted more like a pit bull than an officer of the law.

” It sickens me,” Larry Urich said.

  Urich watched the entire event unfold from just a few feet away in front of the Adams Auto Mart in Victoria. He said the young officer was questioning Vasquez about an expired inspection sticker on the back of a car that he was dropping off at the dealership.

  But Urich said when Vasquez tried to explain to the officer that it was a dealer’s car with special dealer’s plates and did not require a current inspection sticker, the officer got angry, grabbed Vasquez by the arm and started to cuff him.”
