    http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/07/3...ark-dragging-video-incredibly-disturbing.html
    I have been following it since it began, there were some young men on a boat (drinking) and the caught a shark, water boarded it with beer, then tied it up and dragged it on a HIGH SPEED BOAT (around 100mph I assume) until it died, all that was left of the shark was half its head after it slowly struggled to death.
    Ok we all know im no crazy A.R.A. im an avid outdoorsman, and this is despicable.

    "It is too early to speculate as to what, if any, violations took place in this incident," the agency said. "However, the FWC would like to state that the lack of respect shown in this video for our precious natural resources is disheartening and disturbing, and is not representative of conservation-minded anglers around the world."
    They also this these guy MAY "get prosecuted"
    If I were the decider of the punishment, do the same back to the men who committed the crime. In other words water board them, and drag them.

    I only caught a brief portion of the video - it sickened me.

    Nothing in Florida surprises me anymore !! Sad thing is they feel proud and show off what they did.

    People who are cruel to animals are deeply troubled and that predisposition often extends to members of their own species. Real winners, those guys. :(

    Disgusting. These guys should be dragged from the back of a boat at high speed as their punishment. I am amazed at how so many people treat wildlife as "objects". Hopefully, their Maker will hold them accountable if the law can't.:mad:

    Careful now!;)

    Don't judge an entire state by a few degenerates that are probably Northern transplants.

    I know there are a lot of Northern transplants in Florida. In fact, I used to be one back in 1984/85, but what makes you assume they are Northern transplants? There are a lot of degenerates native to their home state as well.

    I didn't say for sure, I said probably. That is because true native Floridians have an embedded respect for Nature. They may be second or thrid generation transplants, but transplants just the same.

    I believe this, but to an extent. That's like saying people who live in Atlanta have respect for the smokey mountains. (they don't.)

    A Southerner that moved to the Far West. Now you are a transplant.

    That's quite a generalization about true native Floridians, and might be the case for most, but I'm sure not for all. Don't know whether these idiots were true native Floridians or 2nd, 3rd or 10th generation transplants, but many folks from many states have an embedded respect for nature, and some have a warped sense whether they are true native Floridians or not.

    Broad generalizations on all fronts here - and really, does it matter? I had a guy comment on a Facebook post I made today regarding a family that was struck by a car while crossing the road that "WI drivers know the law but IL drivers won't slow down". Um.. really? There was no indication where anyone was from in the article. And honestly if I'm hit by a car the last thing I'm going to think about is where the driver is from. And it wouldn't hurt any less if someone from my own state hit me. I doubt it made much difference to the shark, either.

    True, it is a generalization, but no more out-of-step than Post #6.
