NOVEL IDEA, HUH?
If you get your jollies killing and your self esteem from killing the biggest thing you can find, you don’t belong on the only planet we know that has life.

OK, Not posting pics cause the little twat doesn’t deserve any more attention.
Honestly I think this is disgusting. Any time children are taught to harm or kill animals it just raises my hackles. For this kid combining the violence and love is just sickening.
I love sharks, therefore I fish and harm sharks? After holding the shark that way do you think it has a high percent chance of surviving the ‘release’? If you want to touch a fucking tiger shark, go diving at tiger beach with some professionals - you DON’T drag it on your damn boat and then boast about it.
He says ‘sharks are misunderstood’ - whelp ya moron WHY do you think they LAUD you for catching one??? WHY do you think it’s socially acceptable to harm sharks in the way you just did?? If you think they’re misunderstood, there are other ways of interacting with them that don’t involve harming or removing them from the water.
"It’s a sign", he says - my reply "FUCK YOU" not everything in anthropocentric, you bait and the shark bit. it’s biology and instinct. not a fucking sign of your purpose in life. That creature you hooked has a right to go about it’s business unmolested and not act as some signal that you have some higher calling. you can find this without hurting animals.
Cute that he wants to be a marine biologist. maybe he’ll go work for ~ocearch~ or something. *eyeroll*
wow, i’m in such a bad mood right now.
Can we not call children twats tho like so unnecessary to use gendered slurs when referring to a child
*gesticulates wildly* won’t somebodee theenk of thee cheeeldren!
A child is being taught that it is ok to harm animals in the cause of sport. that shark was gaffed unnecessarily - the line should have been cut off the hook and the animal immediately released.
Said harmed animal’s species has seen a 90% decline in the last 50 years and it’s habitat is polluted, choked in plastic, chemicals, and is being horribly overfished as bycatch or vanity dishes.
Not to mention that said species is vilified and hunted, and a child was PRAISED for harming it and got his mug in the news.
Some species are endangered and others could go extinct in the next 10 years.
Not only that, BUT that post is full of expletives, mostly aimed at said child, and you’re TOP CONCERN is that I called him a ~twat~??
#tumblrpriorities GO FIGURE.
jesus fucking christ I wonder what it will be like in 20-30 years from now if people continue like this, I really wonder and it makes me sad, especially when someone so young does something this selfish
I watch other animal groups on FB and man…. the pics of kids smiling while they stand next to shot lions and giraffes and ellies just breaks my heart…. they should be hugging plushies and not shooting live animals. Parents need to take heed when they train their kiddies to be so cruel. :c
Something tells me that this is COMPLETE bollocks.
