June 25 (UPI) -- A group of anglers who hooked a shark off the coast of Florida captured video of the moment a "monster" shark appeared and bit off the first shark's tail.

The video, recorded in a fishing boat off the coast of Miami, shows the group gathered to look at the big bull shark a member of the party hooked while fishing for tarpon.

The filmer said the group was reeling in the shark -- identified by the anglers as a "big bull shark" -- to take photos and set it loose, but the video shows a larger shark appear before they can pull the catch out of the water.

The second, "monster" shark swims up behind the first predator and bites its tail off, drawing other sharks to the area.
