Hello Dave.  Just when you thought you've seen it all.  Being a native Floridian born and raised in Miami, I should know better.  I took the attached photos last night while catching the Metro Mover by Bayfront Park to my parking garage.  I could not believe my eyes to see a real, bleeding, and still gasping for air shark on the train.  It was rather upsetting to see this cruelty and we were all appalled at the man standing next to it holding onto the fishing line.  He just stood there motionless and would not respond to anyone's questions.  He was reported to a security guard and was supposedly going to be escorted from the train at the next stop.  I snapped the photos on my way off the train at my stop so that my son would believe that there was actually a shark on the train!  Unbelievable.  Only in Miami!

This is one instance when I would approve of a shark attack on a idiot human.

*tries not to look like an idiot while slipping an 'n' to the above post*

"She's got fins on the left, fins on the right, and she's the only bait in town . . ."

I've had it with these motherflipping Selachimorphae on these motherflipping trains!

We've got even more of these sharks flopping around on our trains in DC. They're called K Street lawyers.

Now I would have thought "Margaritaville" would have snapped to the obvious Jimmy Buffet reference.

I do feel kinda sorry for the shark. They should have killed it and not dragged it around alive. WTF were they thinking trying to sell a live shark? I agree with Marg. I'd be OK with those idiots ending up with a bite.

I can't stand any cruelty to any animals. Even sharks. Poor thing. I hope those guys go to jail.

Hey, it's better than having .... never mind.

wtf were they thinking trying to sell a live shark?

a) that if would still be fresh?

b) that if you took the cartilage out, it wouldn't be crunchy?

c) that red lobster had an empty tank?

d) that it was the on the way to the seaquarium?

Sharkie, you're lookin' a little green around the gills, Buddy.

They didn't even have the sense to roll him around in a wagon full of sea water?

Of more than 350 different shark species only about 30 are left, soon kids will only be able to see animals in books.

Nitpicky Correction: The shark was presumably gasping for water.

I agree with nursecindy - I can't stand animal cruelty, and this makes me so sad and angry. Poor shark. :(

It kinda looks like he's being taken out for a "walk".

When they find the guy, they shoud have him swim around in a shark tank.

That guy should experience Torn Genitals open.

yeah, i wish she'd gotten a picture of the man!

Nurse sharks, while edible, are not even considered a marketable species. They are bottom feeders who dine on lobsters and not a game fish. No clue what these dolts were trying to do.

. "They are bottom feeders who dine on lobsters..."

Kinda like lawyers, right?

...and politicians...

I think nurses in general like to dine on lobster.

Photo by "Sandy L. Goodrich"?? That's not a very imaginative alias, Samuel, or should I just call you Mr. "Sharks on a Mother-f***ing Subway?"

Further update on the story:

'The body of a shark was left lying in the middle of downtown Miami street after two men tried to sell it to several fish markets.
"It was a relief that it was a shark," said Keith Smith. "When I first saw it, I thought it was a body because of all the shootings that have been going on."'

Paging Mr. Samuel L. Jackson. Sharks on a Train.

(Okay, I had to say it.)

The perps should be sleepin' with the fishies.

poor little guy... maybe he'll be reborn as a great white and pay this guy a visit while fishing.
