Thieves In Hot Water After Stealing A Shark

We’re gonna need a bigger stroller!

A trio of thieves stole a live shark from a Texas aquarium by disguising it as a baby and smuggling it out inside an infant carriage, according to astounding new reports.

The Saturday afternoon heist was so bizarre, local police at first thought the whole thing sounded extremely fishy.

“When we first got the call, we thought it was kind of a hoax being that it was Shark Week last week,” Leon Valley police Chief Joseph Salvaggio told KSAT TV.

Horn sharks can survive outside of water for two to three hours, a wildlife expert told KENS 5 News — so it may still be alive.

“We’ll be surprised if the shark survives. We sure hope it does, but being outside of that environment that it’s made to be in — the warm water, the salt water — there’s a good chance it won’t make it,” Salvaggio told KSAT.
