UPDATE: Officials identify men in video showing shark dragged behind boat


Investigators with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission confirmed they’re investigating who posted video of what appears to be a shark dragged by a boat at a high rate of speed. 

The issue is that investigators don’t know who posted the video, where the video was shot or what happened to the shark. 

A spokesperson for FWC said they take this incident very seriously and they’re investigating. 

FWC said they’re attempting to identify the people in the video. 

Anyone with information is urged to contact the FWC’s Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888-404-3922 or Tip@MyFWC.com. Individuals can remain anonymous. 

It is too early to speculate as to what, if any, violations took place in this incident.
