Three sharks were caught by fishermen earlier in the day, who placed them in the tidal pool instead of returning them to the ocean.

As if it was not enough for Scottburgh Beach lifeguards to have saved the life of a juvenile jackass penguin earlier this week, they have also saved three dusky sharks which had been left in the Scottburgh beach tidal pool, reports South Coast Herald.

Early on Wednesday morning, fishermen caught three dusky sharks off the rocks at Scottburgh main beach and, instead of returning them to the ocean, brought them to the tidal pool.
