This might be the first photo I’ve seen in a while which includes Police and no pointing... 

 

Of course, the ‘big fish’ wasn't there to point at.

 

 

There was a shark attack last year, there was an initial refusal by the authorities to accept it was a shark which had bitten someone, instead claiming it was a ‘big fish’....

Well I can with certainty say it was not a grouper that bit him. Other than a crazed lamprey  it must have been a shark

Why is it Thailand can never quite come out and say the truth?
