Off to the whale-weigh station: Fisherman transports massive whale shark on truck in China

A whale of a tale.

Dwindling in numbers, whale sharks are protected in China – and black market salesmen are punished with hefty fines.

But when fisherman Cai Chengzhu, 48, spotted this 16-foot-long, two-tonne beast, he could not resist having a go.

He heaved it to shore and dragged it to the street.

Then, incredibly, he dumped it onto a truck – and drove it for half-an-hour to the nearest market.

Regulation states the valuable whale sharks, which can live for up to 100 years, should be set free immediately if caught.
