Just say no. by kuroya-ken

   Sometimes we have to be reminded, that we, as human beings, can be utterly horrifying creatures. Shark finning is an unfortunate process happening off many coastlines, to many unfortunate sharks.

Please look at the above deviation.

You can also read this blogpost:… and watch this movie to educate yourselves. Warning: Not for the weak of will, stomach, or heart.

Even though there are many rules and regulations being put into place about shark finning, it is still happening, and most rules, laws and regulations didn't come to pass until the past five years.

The horrid process leaves sharks to die a cruel slow death, usually by suffocation, or being eaten. Many countries have been putting laws in effect to stop shark finning, or at worst forcing the fishermen to bring in the whole shark too port.

We as a people do have opinions, rights, and we can influence our governments to stop the horrid practice of shark finning and bringing the perpetrators of this crime to justice, and maybe even bring down illegal shark finning.

And now, a lovely feature with sharks.
