Clyde Bucky Dennis of Port Charlotte recently caught a 14-foot hammerhead shark with a three foot hammer weighing 1280 pounds. It was also carrying 55 shark pups that were almost ready to be delivered.

Scientists were excited by the catch, which was donated to Mote Marine Laboratory in Sarasota, Florida. They were also saddened, the article says, because the pups all died.

I am not a hunter or fisherman, but I do understand why people enjoy it. But this? This. . . Wow. What a waste.
