Shark Week Sparks Concern Over
A theory has emerged that sharks are consuming bales of cocaine causing them to behave erratically.
Just last month, $ 186 million worth of illegal narcotics washed up along the Coast of Florida.
To test this theory, scientists placed bales of faux cocaine in the water. They even added a stimulant similar to cocaine. Can you guess what is was?
One of the scientist noticed something strange. The shark could choose between the fake bale of drugs or their regular food. Which one do you think it picked?
Many studies have shown the effects of drugs in waterways. One study even found that meth caused addiction...
It is reasonable to think that sharks are coming into contact with illegal drugs. This event sparks concern over how this is affecting our sharks.
