Tourists fined for picking up baby shark from water

this tourist and her husband were each fined 5000 reais for picking up a baby shark (which proceeded to bite her) to take a pic with it in her hands... fine was doubled to 10K reais each as it happened inside a conservation area.

story adds that another tourist had already been fined 5K for doing the same in 2014.

video of incident at end of news story:

there are signs at the area entrance stating that it is forbidden to touch marine life.
