Man filmed pulling a shark out of the sea and pinning it down to pose for pictures in Florida

A beach-goer in Florida has been filmed pulling a shark from the sea and pinning it down to pose for pictures.

A group of fishermen reportedly caught the blacktip shark on Palm Beach in Florida.

The man in the video appears to pull the shark onto the sand and pin it down so his friends could take a picture of him with the fish.

In the video, another man drags the fish back into the sea, but the tide washes it back up onto the sand.

According to a Facebook post by WPTV journalist Ashleigh Walters, the shark was eventually placed further out to sea.

The video is believed to have been taken just days after a baby dolphin died in Argentina after it was passed around in order to take selfies with it.
