A man in Austria has been fined under an anti-burqa law for wearing a full-body shark costume, BBC News  reports.

The law, which only came into effect this month, was enacted to ban face veils often worn by Muslims. It prohibits any face coverings, stating that in public areas, the face must be visible ‘from hairline to chin’.

The man, whose name has been withheld, was employed by McSHARK Multimedia to wear the costume for promotional purposes. The company later announced the fine on their Facebook page, posting a picture with the caption “life isn’t easy”.

Police are now calling for the law to be made clearer.
