In the clip, blood can be seen seeping out into the water where the shark was swimming. According to Newsweek, a carcass of a sea lion was floating a few feet away from the boat.
“He’s a monster dude,” a person in the video can be heard saying. At the end of the video, the shark is then seen swimming back toward the carcass and disappearing into the depths.
As per CBS Los Angeles, the great white shark swam under the boat and then circled it, before returning to feast on the carcass of the sea lion. Separately, Mr McGill, in the comment section, clarified that they were not trying to bait the shark by putting the carcass in the water.
