Human Head Found in Belly of Shark Cut Open by Fishermen

A human head was found inside the belly of a large tiger shark caught by fishermen in Philippines waters between Bohol and Camiguin islands.

The fishermen found the half-digested head and leg after cutting open the belly of the shark weighing about 660 pounds, reported the Minda News.

Bodoy Gorgod, 48, one of the fishermen told the Minda News he has been catching game for nearly 30 years and never hooked a fish containing human remains until now.

"It was so disgusting," Gorgod said of the shark caught on Nov. 5. "We can't bear the awful smell."

Gorgod said the fishermen sun-dried the shark's jaws the next day, but one of their wives feared the dead shark, saying the soul of the dead man found in the shark could haunt them.

"I don't want the sight of that jaw, knowing that the shark had eaten a human being," Perly Santillana told the Minda News. "Who knows the victim's spirit might visit us."

Some people believe the haead and leg may have belonged to one of two passengers on a ferry that went missing off Leyte on Sept. 13, according to the Minda News. The bodies were never recovered.

Some of the world's most dangerous sharks swim around the 7,000 islands that make up the Philippines, including bull sharks that swim in waters less than 100 feet deep and can also be found in fresh water rivers and estuaries, according to PawNation.com.

Other dangerous sharks roaming the Philippine waters include the oceanic, whiteip, shortfin, mako, grey reef and blue shark.
