The shark is pulled onto the boat, it is nearly 4 meters long and weighs 369 kg. What makes the fishermen feel strange is that his belly bulges in an oversized way. So they are curious and decide to slaughter the shark’s stomach. After seeing the object in the fish’s abdomen, all the people on the boat were speechless.
It turns out that sharks are pregnant, there are 34 very pitiful fish in its belly. Everyone is very sad and regretful, because of human mistakes that harm many lives.
