A great white shark washed ashore in Barangay Lob-bot in coastal
Dipaculao town, Aurora province on Wednesday.

The Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (MDRRMC)
warned village officials to take precautionary measures in light of
this discovery, especially since they are still confirming whether
there are other “killer sharks” present in the area.

Arturo Molina, MDRRMC chief, said they have reminded all coastal
village chiefs to be watchful in their respective barangays. Deep
fishing activities are also discouraged by the office, until the
Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) declares no sightiing
or presence of the killer shark in the Aurora waters, through an
official announcement.

“We are now consulting with the BFAR if there is indeed a possibility
that the dead shark found in the shoreline could have had with a flock
of sharks.”

Lob-bot resident Eddie Fabregas Rebueno posted online some pictures of
the dead killer shark found by the villagers.

According to authorities, no marking of severe wounds has been traced
in the flesh of the 16.7-foot long shark. The shark was immediately
buried to avoid further contamination.

This was the first time that a killer shark was found along
Dipaculao’s shoreline.
