Surveillance cameras have captured the moment thieves stole a shark from the San Antonio Aquarium.
Three people snatched the shark – a 16-inch horn shark named Helen – from a pool at the aquarium and used a baby carriage to smuggle the creature out of the building.

Fortunately, aquarium managers raced out into the parking lot and caught up with the shark thieving suspects.
“A suspect is in custody and the shark is alive and well and on its way back to the aquarium,” relieved aquarium manager, Jenny Spellman, told NBC News.
“We value the lives of all of our animals and take pride in the care that we are able to give them as well as the education that we are able to give to the general public about these treasured species,” the aquarium said.
