I am sickened by this. It absolutely turned my stomach and made me cry to think about.

Innocent stray dogs are being skewered alive and being dragged behind boats as shark bait...

Video (don't worry, it is only of a dog rescued, nothing with actual shark attack or anything.)
This particular dog wasn't even a stray, but was someones pet...they've been reunited

Not sure how much good it will do, but here is the petition to try to put a stop to the practice:

Amen to that. I keep looking at my puppies and I have to push away horrible thoughts of them falling into the hands of evil people like those fishermen. Their actions are unconscionable.
That dog in the video looks so sad and confused. I am glad he was one that got saved.

This makes me so dang (being kind there) furious. You know I'm 56 years old and I remember what this world was like 50 years ago. Its pretty dang scarey what has happened on this earth in 50 years. I'm almost glad I will not be here to see what another 50 years will be like. How can anybody do that is beyond me to something so dang innocent.

It makes me sick!!! When we were in Spain I was warned several times not to let my dog off leash in the park as there were thieves about who stole small portable dogs - people's pets! They sold them to medical labs for testing! Who could do such things?

This is horrible!!!!!!!! How can these people get to sleep at night!?!?!?!?! First off getting a LIVE animal and putting a hook through his/her nose then dragging them behind a boat in the water -Obviously pretty fast- and then go to "work" the next day and do it all again!!!!!
