The three people confessed to stealing the horn shark after the video of their weird theft was posted by the San Antonio Aquarium.

The aquarium is in Leon Valley, a suburb northwest of downtown San Antonio.

On Saturday, the shark was grabbed from an open pool by two men and a woman, then wrapped in a wet blanket and put in the bucket with a bleach solution. The men put the shark in the bucket and stashed it on the stroller to make their getaway.
