Recently, a fishing guide killed a world-record 1,280-pound hammerhead shark, which was pregnant with 55 babies, off of Boca Grande, FL.  His justification for killing the shark was to get the record….and he claims not to have realized she was pregnant.  Right.  So way to go for killing 56 sharks in one fell swoop so you can get your name in a record book.  I am definitely not that guy’s biggest fan.   Check out the article HERE.
