Shark´s odd journey through Miami
After a short ride on Miami’s Metro train, a dead shark turned up in the middle of the street, in the middle of the city, in the middle of the night, police said.
Police were called about 9 p.m. Tuesday and found the 5-foot-long shark lying on Fifth Avenue in Miami’s Overtown section. How the shark got there — and why — is the subject of an ongoing investigation.
The mystery began Sunday when a Metromover passenger took a photo of the shark, bleeding and gasping, as it laid on the floor of the train.
The shark turned up dead on the street, covered with flies, on Tuesday.
Police and wildlife officials said two men, whom they described as vagrants, took the shark on the Metromover after failing to sell it at several fish markets.
