Officials … LAGRANGEVILLE, N.Y. (AP) – Seven live sharks and three dead ones have actually been taken from a swimming pool in the basement of a house in New York’s Hudson Valley.
The state Department of Environmental Conservation stated Wednesday officers browsing a home in the Dutchess County hamlet of LaGrangeville last month found a 15-foot-diameter above ground basement swimming pool with seven live sandbar sharks, two dead leopard sharks, and one dead hammerhead shark. Authorities say all the sharks were 2 feet to 4 feet long. Marine wildlife experts took blood samples and determined and tagged the sharks prior to moving them to the Long Island Aquarium in a truck equipped with water tanks, oxygen, and environment control.
Nobody has actually been charged. An examination is continuing.
