PORT ARANSAS, Texas — A local fish cleaner was caught by surprise cleaning a massive shark at Dolphin Docks in Port Aransas.

Local resident Chris Cremeen said he wanted to record a video to demonstrate how large fish are cleaned, but was shocked when he opened the 11 foot long, over 400 pound shark, and found the remains of a sea turtle and dolphin inside.

Cremeen said the shark was caught 30 miles off shore.
