“The FWC has been alerted to a video to a video that was shared on social media of fisherman dragging a shark behind the boat at a high speed.  Rob Klepper, the commission’s public information officer told the Bradenton Herald. “The FWC takes this very seriously and is investigating the video.

The video was sent to The Shark Hunter on Instagram looking for praise and they got just the opposite.

“This is just really sick, one of the most horrific things I have seen in 50 years or professional sport fishing,” Quartiano told the news station. “I don’t know if this is criminal, but it would seem to me that this is animal cruelty and they should be prosecuted.”
