WARNING - ANIMAL CRUELTY: Robert Lee Benac, now 30, was involved in the "horrific" animal cruelty incident in Florida back in 2017

A man who laughed and smiled as he dragged a shark to its death behind a speedboat has been sentenced to 10 days in jail.

Robert Lee Benac, now 30, was one of three men involved in a viral video that saw them ruthlessly dragging the predator in Florida, US.

The horrific footage shows the shark visibly struggling as it bashes off the water at speed.

One of the men was seen gloating on camera: "Look, it's already almost dead," as the poor animal struggled to break free from the line.
