Outrage after whale shark is tied up

5 posts in this topic

A Facebook picture of a girl 'surfing' a captured whale shark has sparked outrage among environmentalists and animal lovers.

The girl, identified as Carinn Lestolis, her family and other tourists gathered around the shark in the waters of Barangay Granada in Boljoon, Philippines, after its tail was tied to a post.

They were seen petting the three-metre long fish just off shore while fishermen held on to it. Miss Lestolis was then helped onto the creature where she appeared to use it as a surfboard.

The giant shark, which eats tiny plants and animals, had been caught in a fishing net, according to Cebu Daily News.

No compassion comes in many flavors. This just brings to mind the old adage " You just can't fix stupid".

Poor creature, I bet it was terrified. I wonder why it didn't thrash around and knock everyone off their feet.
