Johannesburg - A 4m-long Great White shark was found dead in False Bay near Fish Hoek beach on Sunday, Cape Town's disaster risk management centre said.

The carcass was towed to the Simon's Town naval base by a department of environmental affairs ship, with the assistance of the disaster risk management centre, spokesperson Wilfred Solomons-Johannes said in a statement.

It was then taken to Paarden Eiland, where environmental affairs scientists would carry out tests to determine cause of death.

    Fisherman probably popped a cap in his ass. They kill anything that potentially may steal their fish. Bastards

      That's a generalistic unfair comment. Who are you to state that?

      I agree with Warren...if you are not 100% positive and have proof of your allegation, you should not say things like this!

    "Tests to determine cause of death"? Its called an "autopsy" - they perform an autopsy.

    When an autopsy is performed on an animal it's called a necropsy. At least someone gained something from this article.Without pics this article sucks.
