I just thought this animal was so huge that I had to share it. He is massive. It is a shame he is dead though. :(

Here is a link to an article that questions whether the shark was already dead or the fisherman killed it.

Sadly noted, I thought it was interesting that the article stated that these whale sharks are not a threat to humans. If they did kill it intentionally, then shame on them!

There are fates worse than death.

This one's fate would have been terrible.

It is the way of humans.

I don't believe that this animal washed up on the shore dead, I believe that someone killed it for Money!!

"Floating unconscious...." Somehow I doubt that, given the amount of money these fishermen could stand to "win" for it. Sad end for such an impressive creature.

Rather better alive than dead, though, wouldn't you say?

Now I can see why some people still think there are sea monsters out there. That was huge.
