Shark disguised as a baby smuggled out of aquarium

Posted August 01, 2018

Three people snatched a small shark from a pool at the San Antonio Aquarium and smuggled it out in a baby carriage over the weekend, the aquarium said Monday.

Leon Valley police chief, Joseph Salvaggio, said two other suspects, a man and a woman, were being questioned in connection with the theft. A 38-year-old man has been charged with theft.

According to local news outlet KSAT, a man grabbed the shark by its tail while two other people wrapped it in a wet blanket.

On Monday night, police successfully rescued the shark and returned her to the aquarium.

In Israel, however, she is seen by many as either as a provocateur, an irritation or a threat to the military's deterrence policy. Israeli Cabinet minister Uri Ariel said the Tamimi case highlighted what could happen if Israel lets its guard down.

Covino told USA Today that the thieves were trying to sell the shark on Facebook. She was then placed in a bucket inside the pram. One man used a net to remove Ms. Helen from her large, open pool exhibit.

Miss Helen is now being held in quarantine as staff tests the water she was held in and acclimates her back into the aquarium environment.

Police said the suspects were caught on surveillance video walking out of the aquarium with the shark in the stroller.

"When we first got the call, we thought it was kind of a hoax being that it was Shark Week last week", Salvaggio said, referencing the Discovery Channel's week-long TV programming dedicated to sharks.

He says their home has so many marine animals inside that it nearly seemed like a mock-up of the San Antonio Aquarium.

They said it's remarkable considering this species of sharks can live about an hour out of water if they're lucky.

After police located the truck and information about the heist, including video footage, was broadcast by news media, tip-offs directed them to a house near where the truck was parked.

Speaking to reporters, Salvaggio said police believe the shark was stolen to be kept as a pet. The Aquarium said that the shark's value is estimated at around $2,000. But this fish tale has a happy ending - Ms. Helen is safely back at home. "Obviously, he likes those types of animals".
