Who is the naked man who's been pictured straddling a shark?

Man blasted for tasteless photograph

Updated: 

A strange image of a butt naked man straddling a freshly caught shark in a boat has been sweeping the internet.

The "manhunt" as to the identity of the nude person was triggered by wildlife TV show host Anneka Svenska. "Who is this man?" Svenska tweeted on 5 May. "Please find him & ask him why he did this? Where is the humour in humiliating slaughtered animals?"

As the photo burned its way through social media, some thought they recognised him. Find out more in the video above.
