Stop the Shark Culling
To: The Federal Government
shark culling is wrong,
please help me stop it
Why is this important?
My name is Sebastian and I am 13 years of age. Even at the age of 13 I know that killing animals just because they oppose a threat to humans is wrong, so why has the federal environment minister, Greg Hunt granted WA an exemption on the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act allowing great white sharks to be killed? It’s a little bit odd isn't? Is it a power game? Is big bad Colin Barnett (Primer of WA) trying to show us that he has power or is he scared and wants to get rid of one of his phobias? To be honest sharks aren't my favourite fish in the sea but I’m not slaughtering them just because they "oppose a threat". Actually lions are much of a threat- perhaps ill go to the zoo and shoot a couple of them in the head a with a A .22 calibre rifle maybe that will take care of that threat!
Check out this video http://goo.gl/VAJf4b -look at the grin on the primers face at the end of the video; he couldn't be happier, but what for? Scientists are saying that sharks migrate, so unless they kill the all the sharks they won’t leave -I guess they have big plans.
To conclude, I’d like to thank the government. I'd like to thank them for spending $6.85 million tax payer dollars on something that appears to be not what tax payers won't. Oh and good job of giving a couple people jobs at the loss of hundreds of animals.
Are we really better than the Chinese and there shark fin soup? At least they use part of the shark...
