OK and ?? It doesn't look like they are helping him and in the one picture they are standing on top of him.
Yes there are things out there we don't know about so let's try keeping them alive. Thanks for the info.

The article implied that the whale shark was already dead or near death (maybe it had ingested plastic trash?) when found; otherwise these animals should be left to photo divers and scientists to play with as they are useful beasts of the ocean. Interesting view anyway...

Sad to see the death of such a beautiful harmless creature of the oceans.

I hope it was not wasted as a food resorce, if it was caught for fun and pleasure then I am upset about that.............

There is a rare species of dolphins, the "blind dolphins" found in the Indus river in Pakistan. Unfortunately, they are also endangered by the polluted environment.

The article won't open. I would like to know why the shark was unconscious. Was it hurt on purpose?

Well, it appears it may already have been on its way to its "great reward," but my first reaction is thinking that the people going, "Oh look a beautiful amazing animal...let's kill it!" Oh hell. humans will just pollute the planet until it won't support ANY life, including us.... Let's hope we start using our "superior" brains before it's too late!

I read this 2 days ago and it said that the Shark washed up on the shore but I don't believe it because it also said that they sold it for $15,000 dollars, I believe that he was killed for meat!!

Yes it's a really big whale shark and it would have been nicer to see it alive and swimming around.
