Subject: Shark Finning and More
Real quick. We humans have a way of working occurences to our favor. I just want to state something I just learned, and as a JAWS (and horror flick) fan, I welcome anyone to refute these facts! According to several website's statistics, four people per year are killed by sharks. The same statistics report that approximately forty MILLION sharks per year are killed by HUMANS. Please now consider a practice called shark finning. I love Asian traditions but this is not one of them, and frankly, since watching the PETA website I'm not all about eating cows or pigs either in addition to it being healthier and more humane to eat fish and chicken anyways. Back to the sharks, their fins are cut off for soup and these millions are left to die. I welcome any comments. Bring it on.
