Filmed by Perth woman Julie Wright and her 10-year-old son, the footage shows a white car with a boat in tow and a shark precariously tied to the bull bar.

The video quickly amassed hundreds of thousands of views after Wright posted it to the Perth & WA Fishing Reports Facebook page on Monday afternoon.

"I was driving down Safety Bay Road beside a boat, and as I got closer to the car I had to double-take as I was sure I was looking at a shark tail on the left," Ms Wright told Perth Now.

"Lo and behold, as my son and I approached the car, there it was."

It is thought to be a tiger shark.


The Perth & WA Fishing Reports Facebook page estimated the length of the shark at around 2.5 metres, saying the person who caught it was likely to receive a fine.

WA Fisheries has been contacted for comment and is yet to receive more detail on the incident.
