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.

The House has officially voted to hold Attorney General Bill Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in contempt of Congress.

Both men refused to abide by a subpoena from the House for documents so they that could investigate actions by both departments.

The last person to be held in contempt of Congress was Bill Barr when he was held in civil contempt, but this was a criminal charge.

In the case of Ross, he is accused of lying under oath to Congress and they requested documents to prove it. Ross refused to provide the information necessary.

Ross has called the contempt charge "political theater" and of no real substance. If that was true, he shouldn't be afraid to provide the documents. Still, he refused.

President Donald Trump believes he has worked out a killer trade deal with Mexico and Canada -- but one former Mexican diplomat tells Storm Lake Times columnist Art Cullen that the damage done to the relationship between the countries will have lasting ramifications for years to come.
