Hunt on for fisherman who taunted Shark

The hunt is on for fisherman who taunted a Great White in Australia.

Authorities found a video posted on Facebook of two suspects trying to entice the white shark with meat.

This can only be done with a special permit since white sharks are a protected species.

If found and prosecuted the men could face fines of up to $10,000 for interfering with, harassing or molesting a great white shark.

Matt Waller, a Port Lincoln shark cage operator told ABC Australia

“The attraction of great white sharks is a regulated industry and licensed operators go through stringent processes to attract sharks in a right and appropriate way, and this [the men in the video] sort of behavior largely moves away from that,” Mr Waller said.

“Pretty much everything in this video is outside our legal operating conditions and yeah, definitely worthy of being persecuted.”
