In an email to STOMP today (Aug 24), the STOMPer says:
“These pictures were taken yesterday at a jetty in southern johor.
“I was there having lunch with some friends at a seafood restaurant when a local walked in and told the boss that a big shark was caught.
“I did not give much thought to it until the workers who went there to see came back and told their fellow colleagues that the shark was as big as a pick-up.
“This caught my attention. We paid for our meal and went over to the jetty to have a look.
“When we reached the jetty, it was already quite crowded. I managed to squeeze in some photos as the poor shark was being sliced by a hack saw.
“I’m not too sure who caught it but heard it was brought in by three fishing boats from the South China Sea.
“As you can see, the shark was being chopped up, did not stay long to watch as we had to catch our ferry.
“Seeing the poor guy being chopped up, I was quite sad.
“What you see in picture is very different from the actual situation. There was the noise from the hack saw, blood flowing out etc.”
