But amazingly, it was taken far from dry land in the middle of the Indian Ocean.

It was caught on tape by friends who were sailing off the French island of Mayotte when they noticed a tussle in the water.

But as they got closer, they found that the tiger shark was feasting on a horned zebu cow.

They shot the video on an underwater camera which showed these amazing scenes, reported the Daily Star.

It is believed to have been taken earlier this month around 500 metres away from the beach.

According to the man filming, he believes that the cow fell off another boat and into the sea.
