Sharks Rescued From New York Basement And We Have A Lot Of Questions

By Zachary Brenner

Ah, the good ol' Hudson Valley. A quaint little area just north of New York City. Well, mostly quaint. Nearly a dozen sharks were just rescued from a basement there, and that hardly seems quaint. 

Recently, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation agents rescued several sharks they found in a basement. They found seven sandbar sharks, as well as two dead leopard sharks and one dead hammerhead shark in a 15-feet diameter pool. The surviving sharks were captured, tagged, and taken to the Long Island Aquarium.
