(NEWSER)– The shark weighed some 650 pounds, but it's what was inside that was disturbingly memorable: a human head and leg.

Fishermen in the Philippines caught the tiger shark last month, and when they opened it, they discovered the human remains, UPI reports. The flesh was only part-digested. "It was so disgusting. We can’t bear the awful smell," one fisherman tells Minda News. They threw the remains, as well as most of the shark, back in the water, keeping only the animal's head and fins. "We feared that the human remains may bring bad luck to us," the fisherman says.
