A few days ago, three Black Tip Reef Sharks died in an aquarium in Norfolk. The staff in the aquarium said they are "deeply concerned and upset" about what happened. A staff member accidently put the water two degrees colder than it should have been, causing the sharks to die.

The critical question is: Is it okay to take animals out of their safe natural habitat just for our entertainment?
Here’s what we think:
