How many animals do we torture everyday to test cosmetics, vaccines, medicines, hell the wreckage left in our wake is staggering, but dear Chinese stop eating shark fins as the number one consumer in the world does not like it.

I'm not a shark lover, having being bitten once, an unpleasant experience to say the least. I realise that I was in the sharks environment and readily available as a shark food item. Sharks are basically mindless eating machines and to put forth an idea of mistaken identity as an excuse for a shark bite is totally ridiculous.
A shark bites and if it tastes good, he eats it or tries to. Sharks try to eat lots inanimate things, boat propellers, flotsam etc. If you get into a sharks environment you are liable to get bitten.
If you don't want to be victim of a shark bite, don't get in the water, seems like a sound practice, even though I had a friend get bitten by a "dead" small sand shark as he was holding it by the tail for a photo. It wasn't serious and quite funny at the time, to me anyway.

Lets get sad for the sharks and mad at the humans. Seriously, lets worry about how many people are getting killed in Chicago, and how many children are being abused in this country instead focusing on the sharks right now.
Yes I know I should care about sharks because they keep the squid in check. Squid is an excellent meal. As is shark.

Why don't you go feed yourself to the sharks if you feel they should eat more of us?? try teaching them that humans are tasty... eat healthy for a while and baste yourself in a nice sauce.
