Rosie the shark has been saved!
Urban explorer Luke McPherson found a preserved shark carcass in an abandoned wildlife park, and produced a captivating video. I saw the video (thanks to Tumblr!) and interviewed him for Ripley’s Believe it or Not!
Soon after, the tragic story of the shark, named “Rosie,” gained spread through the web, and virality led to a lot more trespassing (my B).
It also led to people asking for someone to “Save Rosie.” And it worked, McPherson reports. As 9News shows, workers drained the toxic chemicals from Rosie’s tank, and will move her to a rock and gem shop called Crystal World, so she can be displayed once again.
