The Shark Arm case refers to a series of incidents that began in Sydney, Australia on 25 April 1935 when a human arm was regurgitated by a captive 3.5-metre tiger shark. The tiger shark had been caught 3 kilometres from the beach suburb of Coogee  in mid-April and transferred to the Coogee Aquarium Baths, where it was  put on public display. Within a week the fish became ill and vomited in  front of a small crowd, leaving the left forearm of a man bearing a  distinctive tattoo  floating in the pool. Before it was captured, the tiger shark had  devoured a smaller shark. It was this smaller shark that had originally  swallowed the human arm. The Shark Arm case had begun. (wikipedia)
