Shark likely to die after Texans steal it from San Antonio aquarium in a stroller

Published

on

A group of “well-trained” thieves stole a shark from the San Antonio aquarium in a stroller — and are still on the lam.

San Antonio’s KSAT reported that the trio of thieves — two men and a woman — made off with the horn shark after taking it out of an open pool where guests could reach in and pet aquatic creatures.

Security footage revealed that one of the group grabbed the shark by its tail while another “wrapped it in a wet blanket and put it into a stroller.” They left the aquarium with the shark in the stroller “undetected,” and staff didn’t notice it was missing for 45 minutes, at which time they called the police.

Leon Valley police Chief Joseph Salvaggio said he’d be “surprised if the shark survives.”

“We sure hope it does, but being outside of that environment that it’s made to be in —  the warm water, the salt water — there’s a good chance it won’t make it,” he said.

Salvaggio said that when they first got the call, he and his officers thought it was a “hoax” because Discovery Channel hosted its famous “Shark Week” the week prior.

The thieves face felony theft charges, and police are probing to see if there are any other federal crimes related to stealing sharks.

Robert Reich walks through all the ways Trump is selling America to foreign powers for his own personal profit

Published

Notorious class warrior Robert Reich wrote a sharp attack of President Donald Trump for his international policies that are doing nothing more than scoring him personal cash and power.

Writing for The Guardian, Reich called Trump "the most xenophobic and isolationist American president in modern history," saying that the president has been "selling America to foreign powers for his own personal benefit."

While Trump promised during the 2016 election that he would "bring troops home," it was likely assumed that Trump meant the decades-long wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The work on the ground in Syria was mostly being done by Kurdish allies and not American soldiers. The number of troops on the ground in Syria, prior to Turkey beginning their bombing campaign, was relatively low.
