The state Department of Environmental Conservation said Wednesday officers looking through a home in the Dutchess County villa of LaGrangeville a month ago found a 15-foot-width over the ground cellar pool with seven live sandbar sharks, two dead panther sharks and one dead hammerhead shark.
Authorities say every one of the sharks were 2 feet (0.6 meters) to 4 feet (1.2 meters) in length.
Marine untamed life specialists took blood tests and measured and labeled the sharks previously exchanging them to the Long Island Aquarium in a truck outfitted with water tanks, oxygen and atmosphere control.
Nobody has been charged. An investigation is continuing.
