NEW SMYRNA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Beachgoers in central Florida were stunned over the weekend when they discovered that a half-eaten shark had washed ashore.

Volusia County Beach Safety Ocean Rescue spokeswoman Capt. Tamra Marris tells news outlets that a dead blacktip or spinner shark was found on New Smyrna Beach on Saturday morning. Its tail had been bitten off.

Officials aren’t sure whether another shark is responsible for the death, but Morris says whatever fish caused the death was certainly bigger than the 5-foot shark.
