Shark Kidnapped from Texas Aquarium in Baby’s Pram

A shark disguised by thieves as a baby in a pram and abducted from a Texas aquarium has been found and returned.

The horn shark – called Miss Helen – “is in quarantine right now resting” and “is doing good so far”, San Antonio Aquarium said.

On Saturday, the shark was grabbed from an open pool by two men and a woman, then wrapped in a wet blanket and put in a bucket with a bleach solution.

The public helped track the thieves and one suspect is now in custody.

An aquarium employee had noticed the abduction and had immediately alerted management.

But the suspects managed to leave the aquarium and escape in a car.

Members of the public helped police track down the vehicle on Monday, after watching surveillance footage of the theft broadcast on local media outlets.
