A dead shark was left lying in the middle of a Miami street after two men failed to sell it at several fish markets.

The men apparently carried the 6ft fish around on the city's Metromover train system, prompting calls to police. News footage showed the dead animal in the street with police officers and squad cars nearby.

Tests later revealed it was a nurse shark

Two stations reported that two men had tried to sell the animal to at least three fish markets for around $10.
