Hooked Shark Saved in US

03.03.2017

Vacationers on one of the beaches of Florida (USA) noticed a blacktip shark, which was lying on the surface and couldn't swim in the sea. It turned out that she caught on a fishing hook and became entangled in fishing line. People rushed to the rescue and helped shark to get free.

First, the victim was pulled to shore, then the hook was pulled from the jaws and the fishing line was untangled. Then the saved shark was released into the sea.

Blacktip sharks come to the shore during migration. So, this year in February off the coast of Florida there were seen about 10 000 sharks.
