That's what I thought - the Japanese have been doing terrible damage to the shark population - they just cut the fins off and let them go!!!

I would not get too excited about that Codders. Sharks- who needs them?
scavengers, killers,monsters, ( reminds me of a few people).. I had the misfortune to have been on a Florida beach about two years ago, when a small kid distrurbed a bull shark about 1 meter off the beach. The kid was severely mauled. Just give me one resaon why we need sharks?, apart from their skin. pitie mal place mon amie.

Drunken Australian man grabs shark

And this is a news clip from the Australian way of dealing with sharks (Courtesy of AOL News).

A man who caught a four-foot shark with his bare hands off an Australian beach has said he only did it because he was drunk on vodka.

Bricklayer Phillip Kerkhof was fishing for squid with friends off a jetty at Louth Bay, a town on South Australia state's Eyre Peninsula, on Monday night.

He spotted the bronze whaler shark swimming in the shallows, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation reported.

"I just snuck up behind him, and eventually I went for the big grab and I fluked it and got him," Mr Kerkhof said.
"He was just thrashing around in the water ... starting to turn around and try to bite me and I thought 'well, it's amazing what vodka does'," Mr Kerkhof said.
As he wrestled the shark onto the jetty, the shark bit a hole in Kerkhof's jeans but all he suffered was a slight scratch.
Mr Kerkhof said he'd had two meals already from the shark and planned to use the rest in a weekend cookout for friends in the town, which lies about 870 miles west of Sydney.

"It's beautiful mate - restaurant quality," he said.

You could say the same about many creatures - that doesn't give you the excuse to go around trying to wipe them off the face of this planet. Sharks have been around for 300 million years - I suspect that gives them more rights than us!!!

I strongly agree that it is wrong to wipe out any species, and that humans have a duty to treat animals humanely. The concept of rights, by their definition and nature is something that can only be extended to and applied by humans. Their is no such thing as 'animal rights' despite the popularity of useage of that term.
