A group of Iranian anglers has caused outrage online, after a video of several of them “surfing” on the back of a whale shark went viral. The video shows twoof the fishermen climbing on the back of the shark and standing on top of it whilst ittries to swim off.
The video was posted by Rahmat Hosseini to Instagram, where it was met with widespread disapproval. It turns out people don’t like to see other people treating a beautiful, endangered beast as a surfboard. Who knew?
Needless to say folks, don’t do this. Animals are not there to be hijacked for our entertainment. Luckily, they did not get the reaction they hoped for.
