While diving in 80-foot deep waters off the coast of Jupiter, Florida, spear fisherman Arif Saber had a standoff with a seemingly fearless and ferocious Goliath grouper, which Grind TV estimated was 300- to 400-pounds. Saber had just caught a lesser amber jack with his spearfish gun, he told Grind TV, when he noticed the large grouper eyeing him and closing the distance in between them.

The video, shot by his wife using a GoPro 3, shows the hefty fish as he nips at the man's flipper, tearing it off, and then goes straight for his catch with its powerful jaw. But, even if the diver wasn't familiar with that specific size of this type of fish, Goliath groupers have been known to roam western Atlantic waters near Florida.

Shark news: Terrifying moment huge hammerhead rips apart victim in brutal attack (Image: GETTY) The Hammerhead usually feeds on smaller sharks like the Blacktop (Image: GETTY)Mr O’Neill said the Grouper was around 200 to 300 pounds heavy, and is normally found on the ocean floor.

One of the divers said he was sure of the shark’s threat when its tail fin broke the surface (Image: GETTY)The incredible battle played out in calm waters off Rottenest Island in Australia on Sunday afternoon after the 12-foot beast smelt blood. The men aimed their fishing guns at the Great white as it circled closer to the two friends and tried to charge at them.

O’Neill said the hammerhead suddenly broke away from the blacktops and made a beeline for a Goliath grouper that was alive and floating on the surface of the water. When that happens, gases in the grouper's stomach expand, causing it to bloat and float on the surface of the water, making it an easy meal for predators.

However, because of the shark's small mouth and the tough texture of the grouper's skin, the hammerhead was unable to eat it. The skilled photographer said the video should serve as a lesson to fishermen to properly vent a Goliath grouper if you catch one.

“Why do you deny the attack on the USS Liberty which is well documented by both U.S. and Israeli sources and which resulted in the deaths and injuries of over 200 Americans?” the man asked Kirk at an October event at the University of New Hampshire organized by Turning Point USA. In the midst of the 1967 Six-Day War, Israel mistakenly identified the ship as Egyptian or Soviet and launched an airstrike, killing 34 crewmen.

Israel apologized for the attack and paid damages to the United States and the families of the victims, but the incident has nonetheless been embraced by conspiracy theorists as a code for Israeli nefariousness. It has also been embraced as part of a strategy by the far-right to publicly confront mainstream Republicans and insinuate their ideas into establishment conservatism.

Last month, young people disrupted a Turning Point appearance by rising GOP star, Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas, at Arizona State University. Days later they made headlines when they drove Donald Trump Jr. off the stage at an event the group organized at UCLA.

“What a HUGE victory today,” Fuentes posted on Telegram, a secure messaging app favored by white nationalists, according to The Daily Beast. Provocative questions about race are often wrapped in anodyne terms like “identity” and “demographics.” And at a recent Turning Point USA event in Ohio, a questioner asked Kirk if there were “any awesome, fun dance parties” at a recent speaking engagement in Israel, an apparent reference to the myth that Israelis were caught on video dancing after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

Howard Graves, a senior researcher at the Southern Poverty Law Center, who tracks the extreme right, said he saw in the groupers a new iteration of the 2016 election, when Trump pushed the Republican Party rightward on issues like immigration.

With the Georgia Senate runoff races just two weeks away, the Department of Homeland Security is warning of the possibility of “ideologically motivated violence” and even a foreign influence campaign as voters prepare to go to the polls, according to a new internal report obtained by Yahoo News. A woman angry with a Detroit-area election official sent photos of a dead body and threatened her family, a day after a clamorous meeting at which Republican board members initially refused to certify local results in favor of Joe Biden, authorities said Wednesday.

Jones has ties to Oliver, Michigan, according to her driver’s license, but the FBI said she sent the threats from Upping, New Hampshire, where she was staying with her mother, and she was arrested there. Instead, it negotiated its capture in full view of, and without a single question asked by, the United States or the rest of the world.

His initials were discovered on one of the patients' livers by chance after the donor organ Bra mall had transplanted failed about a week after he had carried out the life-saving operation. The Medical Practitioners Tribunal, chaired by Christina Miller, considered that “his actions were seen by colleagues as out of character at a time of work-related stress”.

“Mr Marshall has taken responsibility for his actions, pleaded guilty to common assault at the earliest opportunity, demonstrated genuine remorse and sought to apologize,” the tribunal said. The tribunal report said: “Mr Marshall's assault convictions are not fundamentally incompatible with continued registration, taking account of all the circumstances, guidance and relevant principles.

A woman who says she was yanked by her hair from a car by Chicago police during a shopping mall encounter has filed a federal lawsuit against the city.

Japan's highest court has upheld a ruling granting a retrial to a man described as the world's longest-serving death row inmate, a lawyer for the 84-year-old said on Wednesday. IAO Hakama has lived under a death sentence for more than half a century, after being convicted of robbing and murdering his boss, the man's wife, and their two teenaged children.

Mr Hakama had confessed to the crime but later recanted in court citing his allegedly brutal police interrogation and planted evidence. In a rare about-face for Japan's rigid justice system, a district court in the central city of Shikoku in 2014 granted his request for a retrial.

The suspect, Elijah David Bertrand, 19, had been the target of search since Tuesday night when a fellow UPS worker, Nathan Bulk, was found suffering from injuries. The two men apparently were riding in the same vehicle before the assault, Connecticut State Police Trooper Jose Dowels said at a news conference.

According to YouTube user Gimbb14, a Goliath grouper had been circling his boat for about an hour, even appearing to inspect some of his other catches before the attack. The video was taken while the user was fishing off the coast of Bonita Springs, Florida this month.

Goliath groupers can grow to about 8 feet long and weigh 800 pounds, but they don’t normally eat sharks. A typical grouper diet will include spiny lobsters, shrimp, crab, stingrays and young sea turtles.

Hart believes this could be the first recorded encounter of a grouper eating a lionfish without human intervention. Lionfish are considered an invasive species, introduced to the southeastern Atlantic Ocean by the U.S. Aquarium trade in the 1980s, NOAA reports.

Coastal water managers and NOAA are working together to study lionfish, hoping to eventually control them and keep them away from conservation areas. A red lionfish swims in the aquarium of the Schonbrunn zoo in the gardens of the Schoenbrunn Palace in Vienna on Oct. 16, 2012.
