Extraordinary footage of a man casually carrying a metre-long shark by the tail before throwing it into the tray of his ute has divided viewers.

The footage, filmed on Thursday overlooking the Maroochy River on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, showed a barefooted man wearing shorts and a T-shirt wandering down the street carrying what appeared to be a bull shark by its tail.

He attempted to hoist the shark into the try of his ute but  the animal hit the tailgate and fell to the ground.

A video has emerged of a man carrying a shark by its tail to his vehicle on Queensland’s Sunshne Coast

The man then picked up the shark and hurled it into the back of his vehicle.

Onlookers seen in the footage watched on in fascination while others filmed the incident.

One female onlooker can be heard laughing. 

‘Catch the shark and the dinners been sorted for the whole week,’ the video was captioned.

Whether the shark was alive and how the man caught it remains unclear.

There appeared to be a fishing rod also in the back of the vehicle.

The video was inundated with more than 100 comments on TikTok.

One viewer joked that the man just grabbed it.

‘Yeah, you just put your hand in the water and pull one out,’ they commented.

Other viewers were shocked of the way the man rough-handled the shark.

‘People don’t understand we need sharks, this is cruel,’ one wrote. 

Another added: ‘Nicely tenderised on the tailgate.’

A third wrote: ‘Baby shark. Gotta be illegal.’

However, others disagreed it was a baby and thought it was likely legal. 

‘Just a bull shark, don’t worry there’s s**t loads of them around,’ one commenter wrote.

‘Don’t know why you’d keep it though they’re s*******e eating.’ 

The man's first attempt to hoist it onto the back tray of his SUV was unsuccessful but he succeeded the second time

In Queensland bull sharks are allowed to be taken if under 150cm in length.

Some viewers wondered why the fish was not being bled, which produces tastier fillets. 

“People are so stupid I guarantee they don’t eat any of it as they didn’t bleed it and it’ll just end up in the trash. I hate humans,’ one disgusted TikToker wrote. 

Another added: ‘Good eat, bleeding is a good idea, but you could freeze the fillets and that should fix the ammonia.’

Sharks are known to convert toxic ammonia into useful bodily fluids.
