A group of walkers came across the shark early Wednesday morning (17/05/17) and suspected it suffocated after swallowing a plastic bag.

Amber Noseda was there and got some local fishermen to conduct an autopsy.

"I'm no fish expert, but we looked at it and thought it looked really skinny and hadn't eaten for a while.

"With the fellas [local fishermen] doing the autopsy, they couldn't find any plastic or anything else in its stomachs.

"They looked at it and they had absolutely no idea why it's passed."
