A Florida fisherman recently attempted to sell a live shark outside a Fort Lauderdale supermarket.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is currently looking into reports that a Florida angler was recently trying to sell a live shark outside a Publix supermarket in Fort Lauderdale.
The man apparently caught the fish in the Intracoastal Waterway and decided to try to make some quick cash by selling it.
Florida officials say that an investigation into the matter is likely to happen, but that it depends on the species of shark that the man was trying to sell. Once notified of what was happening outside of their store, Publix employees asked the man to leave the area.
It is illegal to sell sharks in Florida without a commercial license.
After the incident, the man reportedly released the shark live and well back into the ocean. Fortunately for Fort Lauderdale shoppers, they no longer have to worry about shark attacks in parking lots.
