A Chinese streamer is reportedly under investigation for posting a controversial mukbang video.
She is suspected of eating a great white shark, which she denies, according to local outlets.
Great white sharks are classed as a "vulnerable" species in need of protection.
Local authorities in southwest China are investigating an influencer on suspicion of eating an endangered great white shark in a video, according to a report from the South China Morning Post.
The outlet reported that police in Nanchong, a city in China's Sichuan province, opened an inquiry into a video posted on July 12 by a streamer known only as Tizi, who has 7.8 million followers on Douyin, the Chinese version of TikTok. The video reportedly showed the streamer eating a 50kg (110 pound) fish that some believed to be a shark and saying, "This is so yummy" in Mandarin.
The video no longer appears to be available to watch, but clips that other users on YouTube and Douyin have uploaded show the streamer lying down next to what appears to be a shark before cutting it up and placing it on a grill. She can then be seen repeatedly biting into a tail-like chunk of meat at the end of the clip.
SCMP reported that people who watched the original video became concerned that the animal in the clip looked like a great white shark, which is an endangered species, and called for local authorities to investigate the streamer.
The International Union for Conservation of Nature lists great white sharks as a "vulnerable" species in need of protection, and trading these sharks requires a permit. The unlawful trade of wildlife products is punishable by fines or prison terms in China, according to the nation's wildlife protection laws.
On August 1, the Times of London reported that Tizi was still under investigation, and that Nanchong police had determined the animal in the video to be a great white shark. The outlet did not specify the source of this information. Local authorities did not immediately respond to Insider's request for updates on their investigation.
