A 35-year-old Brazilian tourist was strolling the beaches of Fernando de Noronha, when she had the bright idea to try to take a selfie with a shark. She grabbed a baby lemon shark right out of the water, which was a decision that she would immediately regret.
Watch the shark chomp down on the woman’s hand, showing her who runs shit in the ocean.
I’m firmly #TeamDryLand, but I thoroughly enjoyed watching that shark give her the business. If you mess with the bull, you get the horns. And if you snatch an innocent shark out of its natural habitat to get some goddamn Instagram likes, you deserve to get your hand munched on.
Here’s Express with details on the aftermath of this ill-advised selfie.
The 35-year-old holidaymaker had to get stitches for the cut to her hand.
It’s since emerged that her and her boyfriend have been charged with animal cruelty.
They’ve each been ordered to pay £5,000 over the incident.
The hefty fine was doled out because the fish was an endangered lemon shark and it was in a conservation area.
Justice and karma have been served. That comes out to $6,266, and I hope they are forced to panhandle as Left Shark to raise the money.
