A huge great white shark has been filmed attacking a seal inside a harbour leaving its guts spewing into the water.

The vicious scene was captured by fisherman Keith Rose while he was on his fishing vessel inside Wellfleet Harbor off the Cape Cod coast in Massachusetts, US.

Footage shared by Atlantic White Shark Conservancy on Twitter shows the apex predator thrashing its prey in the water as it takes on a seal.

It sinks its teeth on the marine animal while flapping its fins in the sea.

As Keith steers his vessel closer to the crime scene and puts it in neutral, he manages to capture the beast swimming away from its bloody prey in the clear water.

He says in the clip: "This is a great white shark. Check it out, a great white, a beautiful great white shark.

"We just witnessed a shark attack. Hes eating that."

The stunned fisherman then pans the camera to what appears to be the remainder of the poor seal, with flesh and guts torn from the ferocious shark bites.

The conservancy shared the clip on social media with a friendly reminder.

They wrote in the caption: "A reminder to all that although we are beyond the peak season, white sharks are still in the area.

"We are extremely grateful to the fishing community and other nature observers who have shared their footage of white sharks with us this past season.

"Public reports are a valuable part of learning more about white shark movement and behavior off our coast."

According to Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries, seasonal shark sightings off the state's coast have increased in recent years, and the outer Cape area is one of the most popular locations for great white sharks.
