Justice for Shark Brutally Shot to Death

Target: Alex Muñoz, Director of Animal Services Department of Miami-Dade Police Department

Goal: Ensure justice for shark allegedly shot to death by chuckling fisherman.

A hammerhead shark was allegedly shot to death by a Florida fisherman as it dangled helplessly from his rod. According to reports, the man shot the shark twice in the gill and chuckled as the poor creature bled out; the incident was said to be captured on video, and the shooter is currently assumed to be MTV reality star Alex Kompothecras. This incident comes much too closely on the heels of the shark dragged to death by a boat.

Sharks were once thought of as dangerous predators, feared by all, but this incident along with the aforementioned dragging, and the case of a beached shark used to open beer cans, is proving otherwise. Sharks are slowly joining the list of animals victimized by humans, and we must stop it before it goes any further. No animal deserves such abuse. Furthermore, it is illegal to shoot sharks in Florida waters.

Kompothecras is currently under investigation for the shooting, as well as for the aforementioned dragging and beer can stunt. Sign this petition to demand the truth be uncovered, and that the MTV star face justice if found responsible for the shooting.


Dear Director Muñoz,

An MTV star is currently under investigation for his alleged shooting of a hammerhead shark in Florida waters. The animal was shot twice in the gill and bled out as it dangled helplessly from a fishing line; the incident was captured on video, and comes on the heels of another shark being dragged to death behind a boat, which star Alex Kompothecras reportedly has ties to as well.

The poor creature did not deserve such a painful death. Sharks have long been thought to be solely dangerous predators, but as this incident and the boat-dragging have proven, they are quite vulnerable and susceptible to human cruelty.

The investigation of Kompothecras must be as thorough as possible, and if he is discovered to be the one responsible for the shooting, he must face justice. This shark’s death need not be in vain.

    Alex – It makes no difference if sharks are dangeous predators or not; this a _ _ hole needs to be behind bars. The Animal Kingdom are citizens of this Earth too and they deserve our respect and protection. That shark wanted his life just as bad as we want ours. All life should be respected and this idiot should have to pay with his life for taking the shark’s…
