    Lovely!!! A dead shark!! Was it an accidental catch or a fishing trip to see who could  catch the biggest shark boost a few egos and assist In the depletion of a struggling species!!!

  2. Such a magnicent creature. It’s terrible to see it ¬†displayed so shamefully. At 84 pounds it was just a kid.
