In it, two men are seen dragging a black-tip shark onto the beach in New Smyrna as a woman films them and urges them to stop.
The woman can be heard telling the men to put the shark back into the water and that they “should not be doing that with animals”.
The men crack on unperturbed and the underwater beast is seen thrashing around on the sand.
Moments later, one man pulls out a knife and the woman says: “Please do not do anything to it”.
She is then told the shark was “legal harvest”, according to Florida’s Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
The man holding the knife then stabs the shark in the head and the woman can be heard asking them to stop.
“This is natural,” the man knifing the shark says.
“Are you enjoying this?” the woman asks.
“Nah, I’m taking it to eat and feed my family,” the man responds.
The clip ends with the man trying to slice open the shark’s head.
The clip has caused an uproar online.
Although black-tips are “harvestable” – meaning they are not endangered and can be hunted – according to Floridian maritime authorities, users weren’t pleased with the men’s actions.
Aguirre said: “A healthy ocean needs a healthy shark population. If the sharks die, the oceans die. Plain and simple.
“We need more shark awareness and education, and better laws to protect our sharks.”
One user wrote: “Cowards. They wouldn’t try that if it was in the water.”
Another posted: “This is absolutely disgusting and difficult to watch. Monsters.”
A third said: “Cant watch this! This is so disgusting!!! Needs to go on the news and someone needs to identify these people!”
