tallahassee - In the US state of Florida, three men go for animal abuse, who were laughing on a video earlier this year with a shark bouncing on a rope behind a speedboat.
The frequently watched internet video caused a lot of noise on social media. Many people thought it disgusting.
The American authorities started an investigation. They concluded that the shark had first been shot and died when the shark was towed at full speed behind the speedboat.
The suspects are 23, 25 and 28 years old. They can get up to five years in prison and a fine of 10,000 dollars (about 8500 euros), CNN reports.
