Don't forget the other side of the equation, those who consume them?
I've always loved sharks. If tapping the mouse can stop a shark from dying b/c of the voracious appetites of apes, then of course I shall!
I'm more than acquainted with all the darkness our world has to offer, but THIS?? Uggh. Whale sharks are beautiful. How could anyone DO this? I had to hide my computer screen from my kids. They'd have been devastated to see such wanton cruelty. These people nauseate me. If I was like them I'd wish their arms suffered the same fate. But I'd feel bad for them, so instead I hope that some day soon they suddenly realise with sickening reality the horrors they've inflicted & I hope it haunts them...

Slim chance, right? So STOP THEM. Because bastards like THAT won't stop themselves.
Your kids need to see the world for what it is. not what you want it to be. See a therapist. Also a fish isn't a human you psychopath. Stop breeding.
Wow, you're an ASSHOLE. So humans are better than ALL other lifeforms on the planet? Why? Because we're more intelligent? Yeah, we're brilliant. We're petty, jealous, hateful, we rape and murder our own species because of power, money, the reasons above, because of race, religion, etc. We create bigger and better weapons to annihilate each other. You think we're "better" than animals? Get a clue.
Should get with Maggie Grant. http://www.causes.com/actions/1679274-we-want-the-french-and-united-states-governments-to-stop-anyone-using-puppies-and-kittens-as-shark-and-alligator-bait-together-we-will-put?recruiter_id=170339869&utm_campaign=invite&utm_medium=wall&utm_source=fb
WHAT!!!!!!!? BAITING SHARKSWITH PUPPIES AND KITTENS!!!!
Kathryn yes people are poaching sharks and gators with puppies and kittens. I hunt gator and sharks and it is sickening what poachers are using for bait.
We have the power, we have understanding, why is this happening, such a ridicules misunderstanding of ignorant people, teach the children, as the adults are blind.
It’s not our environment it’s not our given right to plunder, live and let live, they are not fish ,no such word as fish, they live in the world they know, yet we exploit them, shame on us.
Very well said!
Shark fin is a very popular and considered to be expensive food in Hong Kong & China. But as soon as I learned how they abandon the shark after cutting their fin, I feel so sick to have the shark fin soup. I won't take it and won't let my family ordering it in any eating out occasions. It works and now most restaurants in Hong Kong are not selling shark fin soup. I'm glad the society is changing since the awareness has been brought up
That's right Yoly. People need to be aware of the process of their food before it ends up on their plate. This to me is very important.
Bless you for your compassion and understanding.
have you gone out with a fishing boat to see them cut off the fin and throw the shark back in to drown? no? then have you been to australia to have fish and chips? cuz the fish fillet in fish and chips in australia uses shark meat. so no matter what, whether you have fins for dinner or not, sharks are still dying. be more aware of the underlying problem of society, earning money riding on their whims and facies of "donating to stop finning".
Shark finning is already banned in Florida
That is so good
Over 30 restaurants CURRENTLY have shark fin soup on their menu this is to ban the possession sale and trade in Florida
You should see what Chinatown in NY looks like with all the fins. I posted the photos on FB
Carol Ryder: stop pointing other countries; take care of your first.
hhmmm, you must be from another country Scottie? Animal abuse is world wide. WE AS AMERICANS SPEAK FOR ALL ANIMALS NO MATTER WHERE THEY ARE LOCATED ON THE GLOBE.
Good for you Julia! All animal abuse lessens us as a species
Next time you go into a Chinese restaurant ask if they serve shark fin soup if yes leave and explain why.
I am totally going to do that.
There was a time when I didn't care about sharks. Didn't like them either. But that all changed years ago when I watched this documentary on sharks and there was actual footage of a man cutting its fins and throwing the shark back in the ocean..leaving the shark to bleed to death. That was enough to make me start to care about them.
You are a Kind person, Joanne! We need many more people who actually care about the many species on this planet.
I AM HORRIFIED, SUCH HARMLESS ANIMAL ,dead
