The 12-year old smooth hound shark -- which measured three feet (0.91 meters) -- died suddenly two days after Guy Venables jumped into its tank as a publicity stunt at the Brighton Sea Life Centre, southern England. "This variety of shark is susceptible to stress. We are very concerned he died as a result of seeing Mr Venables jumping into the tank," Sea Life Centre's Lisa Handscomb told the newspaper. "The shark is being examined by our biological services team and if it is found that he died from stress, we will prosecute Mr Venables for criminal damage."

Did he have permission to jump into the shark tank? If someone "as a joke" jumped into your koi pond and your $2000 fish died, you'd be a tad pissed off too.
