A 5-foot-long blacktip shark found in a pool at Mariner’s Cay condominiums in Florida is likely dead after two boys dumped it in and ran, a report revealed Sunday.
Nicole Bonk saw the boys carrying the live blacktip shark with hooks in its mouth into the pool at Hypoluxo’s Mariner’s Cay Condominium around 11 p.m., she told the Orlando Sentinel.
“These two kids, they came back from fishing and threw this half-dead creature into the pool as a prank,” she said. “They left the shark in the pool to die. I think they’re terrible children because it’s animal cruelty.”
“We tried to revive him but he mostly likely did not live,” she continued. “He was barely moving after the trauma. We did our best to try to save this creature.”
FWC will continue to investigate the incident.
When we researched this story further we found this video of a blacktip shark in a pool. The explanation is very vague, but this is exactly how we imagined a Hypoluxo pool shark video would look. Even with very little information over 2-million people have watched this video.
