  • Tour operator and vacationer accused of & # 39; surfing & # 39; on the back of the whale shark
  • Expected to be photographed in the Caribbean Sea near southeastern Mexico
  • Social media users called the men & # 39; uncivillised & # 39; and said & # 39; should be punished & # 39;

Here is the shocking moment when two men are being & # 39; photographed & # 39; on the back of an endangered whale shark off the coast of Mexico, causing outrage on social media.

The men, presumably a vacationer and his tour operator, stand upright on the mighty back of the shark and hold on to ropes attached to a boat.

The photos are believed to have been taken off the coast of two Mexican islands in the Caribbean Sea, near Cancun.

The two men, pictured above, are reportedly a vacationer and a guide and can be seen triumphantly on the back of the whale shark, a protected species in Mexico

& # 39; The operator of the excursion and the tourist who climbed on that poor animal must be punished & # 39 ;, said a user.

& # 39; They are uncivilized people whom I strongly condemn. & # 39 ;, another said.

Although these users were furious, a Mexican official said the images have not been verified and may not have taken place in Mexico.

He said the type of cables used indicates that the photos could be taken somewhere else.

The World Wide Fund for Nature calls whale shark tourism a serious threat to the species. Paying customers can get a bit closer to the sharks and operators often feed them, disrupting their diet.

Ship propellers can also seriously mutilate and injure the sharks.

According to reports, the whale shark is the largest known fish species that still exists. They can become around 12 meters long. The largest known person was recorded at 18.8 meters (61 feet).
