Just a little after dusk and as the beaches start to empty, local fishermen gather to take part in a series of illegal activities on Eastern Cape’s beaches.

I happened to stumble across this purely by chance on my recent visit.

This great white shark was caught through a process of catch and release, after having fishermen take photos with it. Kinda like a trophy animal. They later dragged it back to sea so as not to harm the poor animal.

They didn’t seem too impressed that I happened to be there, and appeared furious when I managed to sneak a few images of their illegal activity.

I later learned that hammerhead sharks are commonly used as bait for drawing great whites to shore.

What are your thoughts on the matter?
