5-Foot Shark Found Swimming In South Florida Condo Pool

HYPOLUXO (CBSMiami) — A nearly dead blacktip shark was found swimming in a pool at a Palm Beach County condo last week.

A woman says she noticed two young boys throw the five-foot shark with hooks in its mouth into the pool, according to the Sun-Sentinel, believing it to be a prank.

She told the newspaper that her and her husband tried to save it by releasing it into the Intracoastal Waterway and attempting to flush out the chlorinated water from its gills. Though, she assumed it did not survive.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is investigating the incident.
