Animals used as live shark bait (Warning)


Recommended Posts



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 - like the dog above - 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 know this may sound a little cruel, but so what? Why is this any different than skewering a little worm on a sharp hook? Is it because they're not furry and 'cute?' Do they not feel pain? Do you not like it when your 'bait' makes noises at you? Is it some kind of thing mammals have for each other or what? Yes, I'm guilty of that, too. But still, I'm trying to get you all to think.

Firstly, I didn't say it was anything about fishing bait - I'm fully against animal cruelty myself.


Also, an animal like a cat or dog is more psychologically developed, meaning they suffer in a greater way than a worm would. Their nervous system is an entirely different thing.


Finally, doing what you [Mephisto] did, what's the difference doing it to a human (in the bodily sense)?

[Pretender] Eh... Sometimes I don't think things out fully before I say them.

It's still something to consider, even though a worm's "diet" consists of eating dirt.


That said, I'm moving this topic to a more appropriate forum...
