By Zoila Palma: According to the Hol Chan Marine Reserve Facebook page, a nurse shark was intentionally killed. The shark was found on the beach yesterday.

The reserve posted pictures of the creature and reminded the public that nurse sharks are fully protected under Fisheries Law.

Hol Chan reminds Belizeans that it is illegal to kill a nurse shark in Belize and the sharks are one of the main attractions for tourists traveling to San Pedro,

They believe that the shark was intentionally killed since its tail had been cut off.

Reports of persons seen killing or in possession of nurse sharks can be made to the Fisheries Department 224-4552 or the Hol Chan office in San Pedro 226-2247.
