No creature seems to be safe from the hateful behavior of some cruel individuals. A video which is being shared on social media shows the depraved actions of a group of men who are currently being investigated by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

A shark, who was reported to be alive at the time of the video, is being dragged at high speeds behind a boat. The men in the boat are laughing as the shark is whipped around behind the boat – one person says, “Look it’s almost dead.”

Adding to the twisted situation are photos on Facebook which indicate that a dog was used as shark bait. A Facebook user by the name of “Liz” posted images and berated the alleged abuser:

The dude in #Florida bragging and having his mates film him whilst speeding furiously in his boat with a live #Shark attached on the back! Being tortured and smashed around! Geez mate takes some big brassy peanuts to do that! Let’s take a walk down memory lane and see what other heinous crimes against nature you have so gallantly committed! #FWC Michael you are so proud of your efforts, hope you don’t mind that we share! SHARE

According to WFLA News, social media users alerted the authorities about the damning video. An official statement about the situation has been released:

“The FWC has been alerted to a video circulating on multiple social media sites showing a group of individuals traveling at high speed on the water dragging a shark behind the vessel.

The FWC takes this very seriously and is currently investigating this incident. We are also attempting to identify the individuals in the video and where it took place.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the FWC’s Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888-404-3922 or Tip@MyFWC.com. Individuals can remain anonymous.”

      Yes they should be given jail time and plenty of it. If they are doing this to animals what are they doing to people that they don’t post to social media. But really there is no need for any lengthy legal proceedings since they gladly posted their deeds willingly. If text messages can be allowable in courts, why not this and other ib=ncriminating nuggets?

    These aren’t humans, but DEVILS in human form! As such, if someone (say, a police officer or two) were to take them, tie them behind the boat, and take off at high speed, dragging them behind, so be it. It’s much less punishment than they deserve.

      Pray that the law does not give them a slap on wrist, they need prison time and the guys in prison will deal with the monsters, curse them, it works! May the evil return to them, KARMA!

    I’m completely mortified by this and too upset to say a single word except……FUCK THIS EXTREMELY CRUEL WORLD AND EVERY FUCKING ANIMAL ABUSER IN IT!!!! They say the next time God decides to do away with this world and everybody in it that it will be by FIRE…….hmmm is that why so many states are fighting the massive wild fires lately? God is probably thinking it’s time to wipe out cruel humanity and start over again anew! SICKENING to say the least

    These pieces of shit need to be rounded up and arrested! This is disgusting! Gee how about I throw them out behind my boat and drag them around? Motherfuckers please hide or better yet don’t can’t wait to get my hands on you all and trust me I will make you cry!

    How sad and disgusting at the same time that there are such evil. mental sewer scum that call themselves a part of the human race. They had better be careful where they show their face as the good. decent men might try a few acts of their own. Fellow prisoners have their own justice system and some of us would love to hear what has happened to all three of them. What happened to the pelican?

    As long as I live, I will never understand how some “humans” can be so utterly cruel, and absolutely bereft of conscience or empathy. I simply do not understand the members of the human race who can treat anything — whether it be innocent animal, child, or a fellow human — with such absolute disregard.

  6. Erica Starks says:

    Take them just off the coast of South Africa where great whites are feeding on seals. Tie them to a boat and start dragging them and watch the great whites launch in the air for the attack and eat them.

  7. Sherry says:

    Nasty excuse for human beings need to be punished severely. Animal abusers do not deserve our mercy, as they have shown none to others.

  8. Jossephine Frazier says:

    These evil monsters need to be punished! So many evil monsters it’s epic, and makes my blood boil!
