In the kind of tale that you have to see to believe - and you can do just that in the player above! - two men in Texas have reportedly admitted to stealing a shark from an aquarium, by hiding it in a baby stroller.
Surveillance video showed three suspects scoping the aquarium out, and minutes later, a man stuck his hand inside a tank, pulled the shark out, and walked to the back.
San Antonio Aquarium said the shark was recovered safely and returned, although there are fears the animal will not be able to survive due to the nature of the ordeal. He drove away without the other man or the woman involved in the shark-snatching.
"We sure hope it does, but being outside of that environment that it's made to be in - the warm water, the salt water - there's a good chance it won't make it", he said. It turned out the man was not some type of a shark poacher greedy for money, but an animal lover who kept scores of other sea creatures in his improvised home aquarium, police said. "But it turns out someone actually went inside the aquarium there in Leon Valley and stole a horn shark".
She said the bleach solution might have shocked the shark's system.
Salvaggio added that local law enforcement is working with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to see whether the theft involves federal charges.
The marine life in the garage was left in the care of the woman seen in surveillance footage.
The shark was found at the suspect's house Monday night and was brought back to the aquarium safe.
The aquarium said managers raced to the parking lot and caught up with the suspects - who denied access to both the vehicle and the stroller. Police said did not immediately take her into custody because she has kids.
On Monday night, the aquarium announced that employees were on their way to retrieve Miss Helen - and she was alive.

He said US farmers will bounce back, needing the aid only because they had not expected the foreign response to USA tariffs. Juncker, who had been somewhat defiant ahead of the meeting, said afterwards: "I had the intention to make a deal today".
First, we will work together toward zero tariffs, zero non-tariff barriers, and zero subsidies on non-automotive industrial goods. Trump later tweeted that work on documents was "moving along quickly", adding that the meeting with Juncker had "great warmth".
