The great white shark measures about 20 feet long and is being considered as one of the world’s largest fish ever captured.

Guadalupe said that “We were amazed and immediately realized that we had a huge, dead, great white shark, and then we thought what are we going to do.”

The two fishermen had a difficult time getting the great white shark into their boat that is about 22-feet long. Instead of putting the shark on board, they towed the shark back to the beach and called for help.

About 50 individuals helped in hauling the great white shark from the waters.

Environmental Protection Agency (Profepa) officials are now investigating how the protected specie got near the shore.
