Injured Whale Shark



On July 11th an entangled Whale Shark was reported in Vaca Cut. The Whale Shark has been seen hanging in this area for the past several days and onlookers believe it has been hit by a boat and possibly entangled in fishing line. Whale Sharks are the world’s largest fish and usually found in the open ocean. Although they are plankton eaters they have very powerful tails that could prove dangerous should you attempt to swim with them. Please remember that this animal is possibly injured and scared. If you see the Whale Shark please call Fish and Wildlife at 1-888-404-FWCC.
