A shark that was likely placed in a Florida condominium pool as a prank was barely alive when it was found by a woman visiting friends.

Nicole Bonk saw two boys carrying and dumping the 5-foot blacktip shark in the pool at the Mariner’s Cay condominium complex, according to the Sun-Sentinel.

"These two kids, they came back from fishing and threw this half-dead creature into the pool as a prank," she told the Sun-Sentinel. "They left the shark in the pool to die. I think they're terrible children because it's animal cruelty."

Bonk and her husband carried the shark to the Intracoastal Waterway to try to save it.

"We tried to revive him, but he mostly likely did not live," Bonk told the Sun-Sentinel. "He was barely moving after the trauma. We did our best to try to save this creature."

Bonk reported the incident to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Officers arrived the next day to investigate, according to the Sun-Sentinel.

Investigators are gathering evidence from security cameras around the pool, according to the Sun-Sentinel.
