People are angry at the owners of a shopping centre where a shark is on display in a tank they claim is too small.

The animal is a popular attraction with shoppers at the centre in Kiev in Ukraine, eastern Europe.

But protestors say the tiger shark does not have enough space to move around, causing it to bump into the tank walls and hurt its nose.

The shopping centre doesn't agree, saying the tank is a suitable size.

They say the damage to the shark's nose happened while it was travelling to Kiev.
