Gone Fishing – Chinese Style

These pictures shows a two-tonne whale shark being driven through a town in China strapped to a fisherman’s truck. It is a wonder Cai Chengzhu can see where he is going as the giant 4.5m creature’s tail blocks his view of the road, and its head hangs off the back. No doubt surprised by his mega catch, the fishing captain tied the fish down with a sturdy rope and headed for market – apparently unaware it was an endangered and protected animal. Not believing what they were seeing, amused bystanders in Yangzhi county, Fujian province, took photos of the incredible sight and posted them on Sina Weibo, the closest Chinese equivalent to Twitter.
