Whistleblowers reported that a shark died after filming a commercial for Kmart!!
So as soon as PETA found out, they began urging Kmart to investigate the incident.
Apparently, according to whistleblowers, a 5-foot shark was flown from New York to El Lay and was put into a small above-ground pool.
During filming, actors repeatedly jumped in and out of pool.
Sharks are very sensitive creatures, as in they can detect the slightest vibrations or changes in electrical fields.
So being on a commercial set, with electrical equipment and people jumping all over the place clearly stressed it out!
Sadly, after the shark was taken out of the pool it died later that day.
What's crazy is the American Humane Association (AHA) was on set during the whole shoot!
We hope Kmart decides to stop using live animals when CGI is so cheap and not cruel!
