Alarming sight: thousands of shark fins drying on Hong Kong rooftop

By: Pete Thomas, GrindTV.com

The number of shark fins set out to dry like the morning laundry on a Hong Kong factory building rooftop is staggering. To look at the accompanying images and video, revealing perhaps 10,000 fins, and to grasp that sharks are being slaughtered at a furious pace so their fins can be used to make soup, one cannot help but wonder how many years will pass before at least some shark species are banished to extinction.....................................

There's a huge movement to stop shark finning. You see how much they are paying attention .
It's not us who need to be afraid of sharks ,its the other way around .

Miss me?

I don't really have much comment one way or the other on the shark fin issue...honestly, I was so moved by the story of Sakari, I haven't really taken on the thread at hand in a serious fashion...thanks for posting that link to your wolf.

I hate these idiots using shark fin, tiger penis, bear bile, etc.

But scientists estimate that up to 70 million sharks are killed each year, solely for their fins.

Another example of  such a vile waste of life.

It reminds me of the stories about the buffalo.  Human stupidity and greed seem to be  the only truly unchanging things in creation.

Disturbing too that the sharks are alive during and after the fins being cut off...

Such a complete waste and for nothing but a status symbol.

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse...A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

But how will we know when the shark's coming for us now? Just wait for the Jaws music?

"All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
