Watch This Florida Man Pull Shark Out For Pics

Update Date: Feb 23, 2016 11:13 AM EST

First it was rare dolphin and now a shark. Posing for pictures at the beach, while jeopardizing wildlife, has become the in thing in self-appeasement.

A video has emerged showing a man dragging a shark out of water at the Palm Beach in Florida. The shark is seen struggling while its assaulter holds the tail fin to prevent it from catching the tide. Soon the fish is pinned to the sand and cameras are clicking. The man strikes varying poses with his catch, weighing down on the shark.

Ashleigh Walters of WPTV posted it on Facebook where it drew caustic reactions expressed over wildlife concerns. Many who commented condemned the incident wondering what prompted the beachgoers to pull the fish out, according to Christian Science Monitor.

After clicking pictures, the video shows the man trying to put the shark in water but it does not carry through. Walters wrote that the shark was put farther in the water after the recording ended but the fish did not resurface for several minutes.

Florida incident is the second of its type featuring an encounter between man and marine life. Earlier this month, a video emerged from Argentina showing a man pulling a rare baby dolphin out of the water. The mammal was passed around for selfies. Before it could be returned to the water, the dolphin died.

The video went viral and drew sharp reactions from all quarters including wildlife authorities from Argentina who urged people to return beached dolphins to water.
