Poor mama shark

Couldn't they have just let it go?
A great hammerhead shark caught off Boca Grande last month was impressive, not only for its 3-foot-wide hammer, 14-foot length and 1,280 pounds. It also was carrying 55 shark pups. Scientists at Mote Marine Laboratory in Sarasota said this week that the litter was the largest ever found inside a hammerhead shark.
