Yesterday we discussed the Argentinians who thoughtlessly passed around two rare dolphins for selfies, killing at least one of the dolphins. Now a Florida man has outdone the callous disregard of those beachgoers but gleefully being filmed as he pulled a shark out of the water and then pinned it in the sand for photographs. The man shows absolutely no concern for the pain that he is causing the animal or the possible lethal exposure outside of the water.
In the video here, the man is shown posing on top of the shark. The shark is then shown being dragged back by others into the water but appears to be struggling in the water. It was then pushed further into the water. It is not clear if the shark survived.
I truly see these videotapes and remain mystified by the actions of people. I cannot imagine pulling a shark out of the water and enjoying the act of posing on top of a suffering animal. I also cannot imagine what a person must be like to have so little empathy for other living things or such disregard for the suffering that you causing in others.
