    People in New Zealand and Australia often encounter horrible sea predators, but sometimes even the most terrifying shark becomes the prey of someone even more dreadful, lurking in the depths of the ocean.

    The severed head of a great white shark has washed up on Pilot Bay beach in Tauranga, New Zealand. White Shark Conservation Trust later shared a gruesome picture of the dismembered shark.

    "This act is illegal on a number of accounts [including] killing of a protected species and being in possession of parts of a white shark. These are prosecutable offences, and we urge anyone who knows anything about this to report their information to DOC or MPI", the trust said on its official Facebook page.
