Dogs as shark bait

Would you believe it? Fishermen are using live dogs as shark bait. Just toss them in the water with hooks through their noses.
The dogs and cats have hooks passed through their snouts or through the tendons in their legs and the hooks are attached to lines and rods. The hapless animals are then tossed into the water where their struggles attract sharks.

  2. Hi Christie.

  3. Thanks for posting this, although it has made my day a little sadder.
