Online uproar ends sale of dead sharks in bottles

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) A Honolulu gift shop has stopped selling bottles of dead baby sharks following an online uproar.

Hawaii News Now reports the Nani Aloha Street shop in Waikiki removed the bottles a day after the environmental group Ocean Defender Foundation urged people to complain to the business.

An Australian tourist said the bottles sold for nearly $25 each.

The store's mananer, Ken Li, said a vendor delivered the dead sharks to his store without his knowledge.

The state Department of Land and Natural Resources has launched an investigation to determine whether the sale of the bottled sharks was illegal.
