I hope the big fish was not prey to all the environmental decay that has been going on in our seawater across the world. Wonder why the head of the fish was chopped. The fish is creation of ALLAH and should have dealt with some respect.

Feel really sad to see these gory images. Whale shark is the largest fish in the world. They are great travelers. These gentle giants used to be hunted off the coast of India especially Gujarat till a few years ago. But now it is totally banned. I hope Pakistan too follows the suit and make the seas a little more safe for these beautiful creatures.
