A live shark was found in a Florida condo pool, according to reports. There is a lot of controversy surrounding the 5-foot animal that was found in the South Florida swimming pool.

Shark in condo pool

A shark in a Hypoluxo, Florida condo pool – no, that is not the title of Samuel L. Jackson‘s newest movie. A blacktip shark was discovered in a condo swimming pool, and no one knows how it got there.

Last week, a woman named Nicole Bonk, who was visiting friends at Mariner’s Cay condominium in Hypoluxo, called the authorities after making a shocking discovery – she saw a five-foot shark in the swimming pool. According to the Sun Sentinel, the shark was barely alive when the woman found it, and she tried to revive it with her husband. Bonk shared:

“We tried to revive him but he mostly likely did not live. He was barely moving after the trauma. We did our best to try to save this creature.”

Officers from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission only arrived at the Palm Beach County pool the next day, and it was already too late for the blacktip shark. Authorities in Hypoluxo say they are investigating this incident.

It is believed that the shark may have been placed in the pool by pranksters because the woman saw two young men running away from the pool just minutes before she spotted the shark. She explained:

“These two kids, they came back from fishing and threw this half-dead creature into the pool as a prank. They left the shark in the pool to die. I think they’re terrible children because it’s animal cruelty.”

Here are some facts about the shark found in the Florida condo pool:

Normally wary of humans, blacktip sharks can become aggressive in the presence of food and have been responsible for a number of attacks on people. In the absence of males, females are also capable of asexual reproduction. A blacktip shark can grow as long as 1.5 m (4.9 ft).

      The shark probably symbolized Hilary Clinton running for President. The shark is better out of the pool.

        Playing with Chance – you’re an a%s! And no, not because I’m a Hilary supporter. That’s the most ignorant, asinine comment I’ve ever seen. If you can’t address the article then don’t say anything.

        That said, I hope those responsible for this are caught and prosecuted. There’s no reason to harm an animal and anyone with half a brain knows that you can’t put oceanic creatures into chlorinated water without killing them or making them seriously ill.

      • Jay says:

        That was excellent. Killery does not belong in the pool. She is under investigation by the FBI for all of the felonies she has committed and does not deserve to be running for president.

      A shark in a condo swimming pool, sounds like a great movie. I would watch it if Jennifer Laurence and Brad Pitt are in it. Lol

      Wow, stunning and only one with half a reason to reply. What? Do you just find blank spots and then graffiti your spooge all over the joint?

      What’s especially upsetting is the known threat to native sharks and their plummeting numbers due to over fishing and eastern medicinal demands. But then to have one caught (and not humanely dispatched, only to live through being hooked and then have young idiots (who drag this animal through ‘who knows what’)bring it to a fricking condo pool to be left to drown in the equivalent of a CHEMICAL CHLORINATED BRINE and suffer? Good job, pranksters.. You’re the most pathetic clowns one cares to laugh at. Seriously sad. I know no one will agree with me but this story really pisses me off.

      • Kevin says:

        Actually, I’ll bet that more people agree with you than you realize…I do.

      • Marilyn says:

        I agree. These so called pranksters need some heavy fines at the very least. Jail time would be even better, but they will probably get nothing. It is a shame the creatures of this earth mean nothing to us humans. They deserve every chance to survive more than the idiot humans on this planet.

      Humanity at its best. Spoiled brats lacking empathy. We are now a nation of them.

    6. Edie says:

      A very small% of people think this is anything but what it is; a very barbaric cruel act by those without empathy. Trolls are every where, but to lump all of humanity in with it makes you as bad as those trolls on this site, troll. Wow, all of mankind are worthless. Get a life or maybe you don’t have any worth while friends. I sure do. Or could it be you only think you and those who think like you are the morally superior ones on the planet.

    7. Jason says:

      Pathetic act of cruelty..

    8. Melissa says:

      Do these heathens have parents?? Shame on them

    9. JC says:

      What do you wanna bet that these were two drug-using, sociopathic, under-parented, over-privileged, white boys. Hopefully next time these scumbags go in the water the sharks give them a taste of the justice our Courts systematically fail to dispense.
