TAMPA, FLORIDA (FOX 13) – The Florida Wildlife Commission says an investigation into a video of a shark being dragged behind a boat has determined the incident happened in Hillsborough County.
This determination implies it happened somewhere in the Tampa Bay, Hillsborough Bay, or McKay Bay waters.
FWC says it will work with the 13th Circuit in Hillsborough County to decide what, if any, charges will be filed.
“These investigations are complex, and the FWC and both State Attorneys’ Offices appreciate the public’s understanding and patience,” FWC said in a statement.
“We take these incidents seriously, and this investigation is moving forward.”
