    I just saw a WhatsApp “status update” with the same thing. There were actually 3 videos.
    1. The “fin” swimming around in Sosua Bay.
    2. One of the longboats beaching with the shark “lassoed” by the tail and struggling alongside the boat.
    3. A couple of guys dragging the lassoed shark along the beach while a bunch of kids ran alongside it. (And the shark was wiggling and snapping it’s jaws!)

    Just looked at the vid clips again. Shark looks to be 5-6 feet in length. The boat that brought it ashore was named the “Edwin III”.

    And if that starts happening with any frequency, a lot (more) businesses will probably close.

    Enough excitement to get the old people off their rocking chairs. What a town.

    Unfortunately the shark may not make it. Those idiots dragged him out of the water for theirs fayboo and Instagram photos/videos!
    We got him back in the water and he still was breathing when I left him but he was really weak!

    I think it’s a Shortfin Mako but not certain. The other Cachicha videos on Instagram show it on the beach and that’s my guess. Definitely not a Great White as some are speculating on social media.

    A bunch of uneducated savages. I saw the videos. They are circulating on facebook with many locals furious with what took place. No respect for nature or their own country. Savages.

    Well, if they come to the bay with frequency it will be the end of it for me, and probably last nail in the coffin for Sosua. Who is going to swim or snorkel in shark infested waters.... ! What else that town has to offer... ?

    I just hope this was dragged in by force and sure hope it ended up on someone's table. I wish I live to see the headline "Sharks are now extinct"...

    If they let it be they will be soon, but some obsessed activist like protect these nasty creatures, a bit like glorifying serial-killers or vampires, come on, support the dolphins, they don't attack humans...!

    Yeah, you got it, I hate them.

    The shark in the videos is a harmless blue shark. No need to do what they did,idiots.

    You want sharks? Go to a lawyers' convention.
