MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) — A mystery on Mobile Bay this morning when close to 100 bull sharks washed up on the beach.
Sabrina Rios and her family are staying in Mobile on vacation and found the sharks this morning. They said they also found a net with close to 40 sharks inside.
Rios said, “It definitely caught our attention because I know that that is illegal and you shouldn’t be doing that. We just didn’t know what to do about it.”
Rios added, “It seems like such a waste. I mean whatever was in the net, it seems like they took it, and then they left the poor sharks there to die.”
The sharks cause of death is unknown at this time. It is also unknown how they got to the beach on Mobile Bay.
Officials with the Marine Resources Division and the Dauphin Island Sea Lab are investigating the deaths of close to 100 sharks.
