People Are Furious At This Viral Baby Shark Bong Video

Marine life often takes the brunt of moronic behavior from their land-dwelling neighbors, the human. Remember the crooks who tried to steal the live shark from an aquarium by pretending it was a baby, or the idiots attempting to surf on a whale shark?

But even by those low standards, this latest outrage-sparker is quite something.

This widely-shared video shows an Australia fisherman using a dead baby shark as a make-shift bong. Just as the chorus to the freakishly popular kids’ song “Baby Shark” begins to play, the guy sparks up, inhales on the mouthpiece shoved in the shark’s back, and puffs away before smiling to the camera.

It’s unclear what species of shark is featured in the video, although Melissa Cristina Márquez, a marine biologist and conservationist, told The Washington Post it might be a young bull shark (Carcharhinus leucas). It isn’t illegal to catch and kill this species, however, they are listed as “Near Threatened” on the IUCN Red List

Needless to say, not everyone was amused by this guy’s late-night antics. The video, which has since been removed from Facebook by its original poster, quickly faced a fair amount of backlash.

“The monster in this video is the one in the hat – it isn’t the shark,” Oceans’ Keepers, a marine conservation group, said in a Facebook post resharing the video.

“This video – and everything about it – makes us sick and fills us with anger. The level of arrogant disrespect is astounding. Humans, we NEED to do better.”

Justin Field, a member of the New South Wales Legislative Council, wrote a lengthy Facebook post about the video adding to this sentiment.

“This video is gross,” he wrote.

“Even if we catch and eat fish to sustain ourselves, we can do it do it in a way that respects what the ocean provides us and nurture it so that it can provide for the future.” 

The man in the video is a moderator on the Fried Fishing group, a popular Facebook group that shares videos of fishing-related stunts and hijinks in Australia. According to News.com.au, the group defended the video saying the shark was “caught by my mate when we were fishing for mangrove jacks on Friday.”

“After two nights left in the icebox I came up with the idea. There is no possible way it was alive,” he said, adding that it wasn’t illicit drugs in the shark-pipe, only tobacco, rather spectacularly missing the point.

“I just want to say thanks to the bunch of sooks who have complained to the point of the police visiting,” he continued in a follow-up post. “Honestly I quit.”

FYI, “Sooks” is Aussie slang for a coward, not to be confused with the crustacean terminology meaning a mature female crab (we had to look it up too).
