We hate to discuss this topic, especially during Shark Week, but some morons just have to be called out for doing stupid stuff.
The video below turned up on Facebook showing a group of nimrods dragging a shark by its tail while running across the water at high speeds, completely ignoring laws and everything they ever heard about wildlife harassment.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has been notified of the video, and has since launched an official investigation. According to Fox 13 Tampa, the FWC is not taking the manner lightly, either.
Thanks for letting us know. Our Division of Law Enforcement has been notified. https://t.co/BDaDmb9rVO
