Oh, but if you start celebrating the deaths of humans, you're called anti-life. GIVE ME A BREAK.

Exactly. But judging by some of the imbecile comments already posted, I wouldn't be surprised if such behavior continues to be encouraged. Its cringe worthy to see people mess with nature in such a fashion. People are becoming drones latched to their phones and becoming excessively narcissistic with the need for selfies and validation. So sad.

Sadism is sadism. Apparently that is either something you are into or it doesn't bother you much. Either way, good luck with that.

Do you extend all that love to termites and mosquitoes?
They're living things too.

No. I know everything I want to know about you.



Oh wait, I do have one question:
Did you go to the shark finning website and do your part, or do you just hate humans?

Actually, I have, and I don't hate humans, just the idiots that don't respect life.

Not sure why you should be discriminatory to "predatory animals." Nature isn't a Disney movie with cartoon villains. All animals deserve to live undisturbed and unharmed from human ignorance. (Hunting for food or survival is one thing, though no one ever needs to eat a shark, which is loaded with mercury to the gills.)

Predators like sharks are necessary for population control and disease control in the ocean, too. Sharks eat sick and infected fish which reduces the spread of disease across the sea. Dolphins are predators, too, though. Regardless of how cute they are. (They also are known to gangrape..) Orcas are technically a type of dolphin, and they're more predatory than even great whites.

This story enrages me just a much as the dolphin one. I hate ignorant people who do ignorant things. Respect the ocean, dammit!
