(Newser) – A pair of Mexican fisherman cast their net wide, and captured a monster: a 2,000-pound great white. The 20-foot long shark was nabbed in the Sea of Cortez off Guaymas. "We were amazed when we realized that we had a huge, dead, great white shark, and then we thought, what are we going to do?” one of the fisherman told Pisces Sportfishing. Their boat had to be towed to shore with the extra weight, and more than 50 bystanders helped the men drag the shark onto the docks. The shark then "fed the whole town."
