Simians on the Rocks!

Not a Great White? Pics by Oceans Research - click for detail.

Poor reviled Leon Bekker did not know he had hooked a Great White.
He certainly did not haul it onto the rocks.

He also most definitely did not pose with the Shark!

As Patric says.

We understand that S.A is a world away from conservation norms, but to those who would claim that they are the leaders of any conservation movement with sharks in S.A we say
"show us what you got".

It's your backyard and this guy just took a great big dump in it.

Thank you Oceans Research for breaking the story.
PS there has been a public outcry - let's see if it leads to something!

Methinks this backwoods cro-magnon knew what he was up to but didn't expect to encounter anyone with a camera and a pro-white shark attitude.

Praise be to Team Ocean Research.

This is proof of law breaking, i9f the authorities don't act and punish this idiot within the boundaries of existing legislation then it makes a total mockery of the law being in place in the first place. How can a seasoned fisherman not know what a White Shark looks like either?

I would hope that the shark conservation groups within SA handle this the way it needs to be as opposed to just launching facebook groups and petitions.
