DOMINICAN REPUBLIC: huge 14 foot tiger shark

On the South part of Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic and huge tiger shark (Galeocerdo cuvier)  was landed from the shore. Seems that this monster shark was estimated in 14 feet in length and around 1.500 lbs - 680 kilo in weight. For sure a record fish for the Caribbean Sea.

The catch of this huge  tiger shark, a male, occurred in the waters near kilometer 13 of the coastal Las Americas Highway, located in the south of the island of Dominican Republic.
Seems that a group of five fishermen fought the shark for over eight hours. They used chicken as bait, which the predator took in the early morning hours. Here below a video:
