In New South Wales, Australia a group of fishermen were casting their lines into their local swimming hole called the Hastings River when they hooked a massive bull shark about 8 feet long.
Once they got it reeled in the boys posed up for a picture showing just how big it was. Afterwards, the fellas started to cut into it and were shocked to see that this was a pregnant female shark that had nine baby sharks inside.
The guys pulled their new findings out and took another picture of the baby sharks then later posted the images to Facebook. The post got positive feedback from other fishermen and those scared of sharks but it also definitely started a fire of criticism by others for killing the animal.
Bull sharks are one of the most aggressive and dangerous species of sharks on the planet so having them in your swimming hole can definitely be of some concern. Also, due to their habitats being overtaken by humans they are actually now on the Near Threatened list which is another thing to be concerned about.
This is a touchy subject, and we’re just here to report the facts of how both sides responded. How do you guys feel about this situation that unfolded?
