Wow. Just......... wow.<br><br>
HOWEVER, I do find it sadly humorous that other living, sentient beings are tortured far worse in this country and by the millions EVERY DAY yet that's okay because it's people food, not shark food. :LOL

I think that story is a bit of an exaggeration, as many media stories are... I dont think a dog getting dragged behind a fishing boat would stay attached to the hook.<br><br>
Heres something on snopes about it<br><a href="http://www.snopes.com/critters/crusader/sharkbait.asp" target="_blank">http://www.snopes.com/critters/crusader/sharkbait.asp</a><br><br><b>The link contains a picture some people may find graphic</b>

actually, that snopes link confirmed the original link in just about every detail. the op's link doesn't claim this is a widespread practice incorporated by professional fishermen in the area-just that it has and does occur. and that my picture, oh my god.<br><br>
this pacifist would happily inflict bodily harm on anyone found responsible.

and you know-as inhumane as the meat industry here is, i don't think it comes close to comparing to this horror.

stray dogs/cats are used as deer huntin' practice around here <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: many are not killed but wounded & left to die in pain in the woods.<br><br>
I'm with MamaG & would galdly go medievel/vigilante on some of these "humans" in a heartbeat.<br><br>
also another shocker is Korea's dog meat industry - if you can call it:<br><br>

I didnt read the link the OP posted to the article...I have read a couple articles a few weeks ago about this that did imply this was a widespread accepted practice.<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

I am sure it does happen, but some of these stories can be "embellished" quite a bit.<br><br>
I remeber a few years back a journalist lost their job when they were caught paying Chineese people that were butchering dogs to beat and torture them before hand so they could make their story and take some sensational pictures... I am sure things like this happen but I usually take stories like these with a grain of salt.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------<br><br>
In an effort to keep the Activism board to its true purpose, we have begun to moderate the threads posted here.<br><br>
Threads posted to Activism should be of an Activist nature. Things such as letter writing campaigns, rallies, protests, etc.<br><br>
Discussions of policies and of the semantics of issues should be placed in News & Current Events or other appropriate forum. Threads asking for input on a topic should go into the appropriate forum.<br><br>
In addition - if you do not agree with a call to action/rally/protest, please do not post to the thread. Instead begin a thread in News & Current Events, or other appropriate forum, for discussion or the topic. Do not discuss the thread, or the original poster of the thread. If you find a counter cause of one posted here to be worthy, please start a new thread in Activism. THIS IS NOT A DEBATE BOARD.<br><br>
Once you have posted your thread, I will approve it for the forum. Please be patient, and don't try to post multiples of the same post if it doesn't show up right away.<br><br>
Thanks!<br><br>
