The French are also remarkable for their collection of German flags, and their ability to eat things that we'd generally walk around if found on a garden path.

Mindless

He may not have done. but I have. I think it was best expressed by the humourist who stated that it was the unspeakable in full pursuit of the uneatable.

Point is that it's all food... Give me a 12-gauge and I'd quite happily blow a cows brains out in a fraction of a second, carve a sodding great steak off it and cook it-as long as the rest wasn't going to waste and I wasn't doing it illegally.I'd actually prefer to raise and kill my own meat-at least that way I know it hadn't been tortured by being raised in a factory farm or spent 2 weeks travelling across Europe in an overcrowded truck to be slaughtered in a terrifying environment. Humans evolved as omnivores and an animal free diet simply doesnt provide certain things we need.
Go into a vegan cafe and play 'spot the non-vegan'...it's quite easy,they are the one that dont look pasty and like they might be a bit ill.


I can KIND of see the point with eating dog-if you're raised to see an animal as food then its the same deal as us eating pork-Pigs are as intelligent as dogs and we still eat them-but the treatmentof dogs before death is revolting and needs addressing. Fishing for sharks with live dogs is disgusting-its akin to fishing for killer whales with live seal pups and the sickos doing it should be shot.

What a wonderful species we are......not!

Can't read much more of this

From Snopes.com

Seems that there is some truth in the story but some of the details have been misreported/jazzed up by the news media.

http://www.snopes.com/critters/crusader/sharkbait.asp

I hasten to add that even 1 fisherman using a stray in this manner is abhorrent.

Here's the reply I got from the RSPCA:

Thank you for your comments regarding the picture and story featured on our website about stray dogs used as sharkbait on the Island of Reunion in the Indian Ocean.

Some of the staff here also had reservations at first about whether this story and picture were genuine. However, I can confirm that everything has been double checked and verified by both our Press Office and International department.

We have spoken to several people from animal welfare groups working in the Region who have confirmed that the information is correct. In fact one person is due to appear in court within the next couple of days charged with animal welfare offences. Our Press Office have also seen video footage which they believe to be genuine.

Finally, I can confirm that the dog featured in the picture was thankfully rescued and taken to a vet for treatment.

Thank you for contacting the Society.


Kind regards
RSPCA Enquiries Service

Another example of animal cruelty only this time it is animal to animal (you could argue it always is)

I am undecided as to which animal is the victim, is it the gator for being eaten or the python for being too greedy Des
