Poor Porbeagle

This porbeagle shark was hooked accidentally the other day.  As they got it closer to the boat it became obvious that the poor guy had a plastic strap cutting into its dorsal fin and around its body.  They said that it looked like a plastic box tie strap. While the crew hoped to get the shark close enough to try to cut the strap free, it pulled the hook and swam away before they were able.

It makes me super sad.
