KARACHI: A whale shark was washed up on the shores of Hawksbay in Karachi on Monday.

The whale shark got caught in the nets of local fishermen, who were not able to free it in time.

Later, the fishermen dragged the fish back to shore. They said their only choice was to bring it back, as the weight of the fish would have sunk their ships.

The whale shark is around 17 feet long and weighs approximately two tonnes.

This whale shark is near extinction.
