5 Animals That Became Hapless Victims To Tourists’ Stupidity And Cruelty

3. Whale Shark

Although whale sharks are considered to be one of the most approachable underwater creatures, their gentle behavior is sadly abused by a few people. In 2015, a video uploaded on the Internet showed two tourists abusing a poor whale shark. It seemed like the tourists were having fun while surfing on the back of a whale shark, holding a rope, which is attached to a moving boat. The whale shark’s back was used as a surfboard and the sad part was these tourists did not have a clue of the extent of their cruelty to the animal.
