Sharkbait

http://www.thesun.co.uk/article/0,,2-2005450117,00.html






By IAN HEPBURN

STRAY dogs are being skewered on hooks and dragged behind boats as live shark bait, The Sun can shockingly reveal.

The cruel practice takes place on French-controlled Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean, where Prince William spent two holidays.

A six-month-old labrador pup was recently found ALIVE with a huge double hook through its snout - and another through a leg.

The pup was found in a coastal creek and is thought to have somehow freed itself from a fishing line.

But other dogs and kittens have been chomped up and swallowed by sharks.

The RSPCA plans to petition the French government, demanding an end to the hideous torture.

I am not sure this is true or not. The Sun is a Enquirer type magazine but I have heard of this type of fishing before. I just cannot fathom a person driving hooks through the snout of a live dog and tossing him in the water.

I say find these people drive hooks thru their nuts and lets go fishing for Great White's

Re: Sharkbait

I can't imagine (from that picture) that there is enough strength in the muscle and tissue to keep the 'bait' from falling off the hook.

But then again - I hope it isn't true. Guess I should look into it.

Re: Sharkbait

Especially when there's more squirrels than we know what to do with - they would make great bait.

Re: Sharkbait

PETA protesting something doesn't give it legitimacy in my eyes, but I would seriously remove someone from the boat in shark infested waters if I witnessed them hooking dogs.
