The Cost of Shark Bait Soup: Dolphins Chopped Up And Skinned Alive

Background Source

Shark fin soup comes with a price. And we’re not talking the thousands people pay to eat it — we’re talking the mass killing of sharks, the disruption of our oceans’ ecosystem, and the brutal slaughter of hundreds of thousands of dolphins used by fishermen as shark bait.

Every day, hundreds of dolphins in Peru are harpooned, chopped up, and skinned alive to be used to lure sharks to boats. And despite Peru’s legislature outlawing dolphin killings in 1996, enforcement is so lax that up to 10,000 dolphins are still slaughtered every year.

Fishermen eager to cash in on shark fin soup’s popularity don’t care about these amazing creatures or the havoc they’re wreaking on the ecosystem. But if we pressure the Peruvian government to crack down and enforce its dolphin hunting ban, we can save our oceans before it’s too late!  PETITION TO PERUVIAN PRESIDENT AND LEGISLATURE: Stop the senseless slaughter of these intelligent animals. Enforce the ban on dolphin meat and prosecute fisherman who kill them illegally.

the mother of earth looked at her errant
as they ravaged her, tore her species
the mother of earth just watched
as the manchildren went under.
the mother of earth, by sadness
driven mad.
drowning in her own tears
as she mourned what
she once had.

    Signed. Btw, the email I sent about the parrot got blocked by some kind of spam filter. Sorry. I will look into it some more.

      Thank you so much for trying, Sarah. Sometimes they block their emails because they are getting so many.

        I tried using a different email address but that got blocked too. Oh well.

          I’m sorry, Sarah, I meant they block theirs. But thank you much for trying in the first place. 🙂

            That’s okay. I hope they do something about the parrot. They must have had lots of emails to go to the bother of blocking them. 🙂

            Exactly! Thanks, Sarah.

    Les Dauphins doivent être protègés, c’est inadmissible qu’ils soient tués.

        you are so welcome, stacey and thank you.

        the cruelty that surrounds us is beyond overwhelming.

    It looks like a stupid joke… but I realize that Man is pure aberration! I am speechless, as every time I read news like this one… I’m with PETA and several other organisations which protect nature and animals. This is a commitment 🙂
