the 10 days wasn't for the dragging but rather for thinking it would work out to post it online.

A lot of people do not fully understand this story. When you go shark fishing you tie a rope to the sharks tale and slowly drag it behind the boat. This is one of the quickest way to kill your catch as the shark can not breath when the water is traveling backwards. The reason this instance was considered animal abuse is because this idiot went full speed which prolonged the death.

Funny how this article beings out the Leftists in droves and all the virtue signaling bilge as people pile their condemnation on this guy and then show how much worse they are as human beings by threatening his daughter. You people need to get some principles.

I'm more surprised this f🦆cked up country enforces humanity laws on behalf of fish. If tha''s the fastest way to kill a shark ''d say tha''s the most humane killing method. ''m not for the food industry conducted around sharks however.

If he had a legal license, I think a fine would be appropriate. Jail is ridiculous.
