For an hour and a half, British anglers Wayne Comben and Graeme Pullen fought a 10-foot shark in the sea off Boscastle, North Cornwall, in the southwest point of England.

A member of the great white family, the powerful fish dragged their boat for a mile out to sea during the struggle, before exhaustion allowed Comben to reel it in.

Thought to be a female and possibly pregnant, experts calculate the shark weighed about 550 pounds.
