She cuts the fish in half then grills its tail and boils its head in broth.

“It may sound vicious, but his meat is really super tender,” she says in the clip.

The blogger shares the meal with local villagers, who seemed quite impressed with her cooking. Towards the end of the vlog, Tizi claimed the creature was a hook shark that had been “bred in captivity”.

While the clip may have gotten him his desired number of views, he certainly didn’t impress a large chunk of netizens.

It is learned that the Nanchong police have launched an investigation and revealed that Tizi had in fact cooked a great white shark. The uproar was expected because the predator is a protected species in China.

One can face jail in the country if found guilty of illegal trade in animals and wildlife products.

State media reported that the shark was not brought from the location shown in the video. Their investigation revealed that the place was only used as a filming location.

According to the South China Morning Post, the clip has since been removed from Douyin but Tizi has denied the charges against her.

“I bought it legally and am looking for a lawyer. These people were talking nonsense,” she told Red Star News.
