Hawaii Lawmakers Introduce Bill to Ban Shark Killing
Hawaii Lawmakers Introduce Bill to Ban Shark Killing According to the legislation, first offenders will be penalized $500.
Those who break the potential law a third time would be fined $10,000.
Anyone caught knowingly abusing, capturing or intentionally entangling a shark would be fined as well.
Penalties will also be issued even if the shark is already dead.
Hawaii has a similar set of guidelines already in place for manta rays.
