1WHAT DID THE FLORIDA FISHERMAN DO FOR THE BABY SHARKS?
The people of Florida on the Harbor walk in Destin witnessed a horrifying incident. They saw a Florida fisherman removing 34 dead bodies of the baby sharks from the body of the huge 13-foot hammerhead. The hammerhead had been caught in the net during a fishing expedition by a charter known as Phoenix. It was not a usual fish rather a huge 830 pounds heavy shark and an endangered specie, that had been targeted with a bullet or stabbed by a spear in the body, cutting the fin off. The spectator Jeff Bratcher reported to the AL.com that his son said it was wrong to hurt the endangered species. To this, he responded that they belonged to Oklahoma and all they cared about was capturing catfish.
The 32 baby sharks were found dead and were cut and thrown in the bucket.
Even though hammerheads have been considered as the endangered species, they lack protection from the U.S government.
It was later discovered that the shark had been captured in the international waters and had died during the shipment process.
