Pregnant shark at Oklahoma Aquarium in Jenks dies

JENKS, Okla. (AP) _ A pregnant bull shark at the Oklahoma Aquarium in Jenks has died after what officials call a freak accident.

Aquarium officials say the shark hit its head and died after jumping out of its cage.

Aquarium spokeswoman Susan Branch says the shark was thought to be sterile, but an autopsy found it was pregnant.

The aquarium opened in May 2003 and features Oklahoma's native fish plus 200 exhibits and a tank featuring both fresh and saltwater fish.
