The laughing, jovial men who are in a now viral video which shows a shark being mercilessly dragged behind a speeding boat have been identified. According to Wednesday’s publication of the Miami Herald, the men have been identified by Florida wildlife officials, but their identities are not yet being made public.

The video sparked outrage as it began circulating on social media – one of the laughing men can be heard saying “Look it’s almost dead,” as the shark’s body is flailed around in the churning water behind the boat. After the horrific boat dragging ended, one of the men held up the mangled body of the shark for a photo.shark mangled during cruel video

Officials were alerted to the sickening act after one of the people in the video gave it to Capt. Mark Quartiano, a renowned Florida shark hunter. Quartiano alerted the authorities and offered his thoughts on what was portrayed in the video, “I’ve killed tens of thousands of sharks but not tortured them, not inhumanely and not disrespected them like that.”

The case is still being investigated – anyone with information is asked to reach out to the state hotline at 888-404-FWCC (3922) or online at Tip@MyFWC.com.

    These humans killed an animal for their own entertainment! They must be prosecuted and put in jail! Cruelty as entertainment is unacceptable! Those who are guilty of this must be put in jail!

    While I have no great love for sharks, I would not hurt one either…… I leave them alone and hope for the same courtesy……..

    These POS’s are disgusting and deserve to be heavily fined and locked up forever until they die and go straight to Hell to burn forever for their cruelty……..

    Another article alluded to these POS’s using a dog as bait…… even more horrible……. I truly hope they die in pain and afraid………

    RIP poor dog and poor shark……. you didn’t deserve your horrible deaths as amusement for these lowlife POS’s………..

    Sorry….. but hunting of any kind is abuse….. this one was just worse case scenario. If hunting killed the animal INSTANTLY….they never knew what hit them…maybe it could be considered humane. But very few kills are instant.
