    Thieves Attempt to Steal Live Shark From San Antonio Aquarium

    If you have never been to the San Antonio Aquarium, it's a really nice place. They have several large open tanks that you can pet and or feed the animals such as Rays and sharks. Something fun to go do if you are in town over there.

    Then you have these two...

    I saw an update that when the police went to the guys house it was set up to replicate the SA Aquarium...he was supposedly a "collector" who had one in the past and wanted another one. Thank goodness the manager followed them out to their truck and was able to give authorities enough info to track the guy down and rescue Ms. Helen.

    Why would you want to steal a frickin shark?! It's so ridiculous it's kind of funny.

    Wow, that's so sad.

    What about where they poured the bleach? Since no mention of it besides the one spot I'm hoping everything was fine and they closed off the system?

    The guy apparently had an aquarium & equipment. Why steal the shark? You can buy a horn shark relatively cheaply... a buddy had one in his large predatory tank in college.
    So stupid.

    Yeah that's the part where it stops being a bit comical. If some idiot just grabbed a shark from a tank and ran with it, it looks a bit silly. Dumping bleach in the other tank, yeah no thanks. Not to mention the lack of empathy for the animals is a huge red flag within the psychological community. Those folks ain't right.
