A shark that mauled a Russian national to death in Egypt last week will end up as a museum exhibit, a top Egyptian oceanography researcher told the local Cairo24 news media outlet on Sunday.

Scientists will mummify the predator and place it in the Marine Biology Museum in the Egyptian city of Hurghada once they finish their research on the creature, professor Amr Zakaria Hamouda, the head of the National Institute of Oceanography and Fisheries said.

According to Hamouda, the institute initially planned to study and treat the fish before releasing it. He did not elaborate why the scientists had changed their decision. According to Egyptian media, the predator was injured but still alive when it was caught.

Videos that surfaced on social media, however, showed a crowd of fishermen dragging the shark to shore. Some of them were seen beating the predator as it resisted capture. The footage does not show whether the shark was killed by the fishermen and Hamouda said only that scientists had dissected its corpse.

A Washington District Court judge has issued an order requiring Olympus Spa, a family-owned female-only spa with compulsory nudity, to admit transgender women, including those with penises.
