share on:

Outrage has been drawn after a video surfaced of men in Venezuela surfing on a whale shark.

The video was reportedly filmed around Venezuela, showing a man climbing aboard the shark and surfing.

In the video, spectators can be heard cheering for him as he pulls off the stunt.

The Marine Line Connection, which shared the video, criticized the act.

“What a sad reflection on their attitude to wildlife when, instead of considering themselves fortunate to see this majestic creature in the wild, they choose to participate in a stupid stunt like this,” the group said.

Watch the video here.

Wildlife harassment is never a laughing matterUnbelievable footage of individuals ‘surfing’ a whale shark. What a sad reflection on their attitude to wildlife when, instead of considering themselves fortunate to see this majestic creature in the wild, they choose to participate in a stupid stunt like this (wonder if they would have done this with a great white shark?). As whale sharks are protected – the IUCN (World Conservation Union) Red List of Threatened Species lists the Whale Shark as vulnerable – these guys should be charged – come on FB community, please help bring these people to justice for their stupidity and arrogance treating a protected species in this way. If anyone has any information on this incident, please message us. Please share widely.
