    It is shocking to me, in this day and age, how irresponsible and cruel these people are. Sharks are disappearing from our oceans faster than they can recover and you foolish foolish people go out and slaughter more. Recreational fishermen murder over 250,000 a year. It is stupid, cruel…and yes, did I mention STUPID! Honestly…what in the hell is wrong with you people???
