Good to see my work here has been done.

Maybe it was regarding how newspapers have jumped the shark? I suppose that's a bit of a stretch.

"The juvenile Port Jackson shark, which measured around 70cm, was left in darkness outside the office at Warrnambool, on the coast of southeast Victoria state."

Maybe his mother just didn't feel she could raise him, so she left him where she knew he would be cared for. Newspaper offices are one of the designated drop-off points under the Safe Shark Haven Act of 2007.
 
2009-04-23 07:26:51 AM
In unrelated news, Internet portals report that a small tsunami struck Port Jackson last night. This should aid local newspaper's breaking coverage of why the ocean tastes salty.

The shark was arrested for solicitation of sodomy.

It's an Internet message: the print newspaper business sleeps with da fishes.

"with authorities vowing to charge the person who left it with animal cruelty."

Whoa there Nellie. Whole new can of worms here. Although I disagree with killing anything without reason, if leaving a fish to die on the sidewalk is cruelty to animals then every fisherman who has ever thrown a fish on the deck of a boat or into a fish box to die will also be implicated.

Trump up a more suitable charge..like litter or improper disposal of fish or creating a stink. Something is fishy about this.

"We arrived and poured some water on it just to see if it was still breathing and it kicked around for a little while," Constable Jarrod Dwyer said.

"I walked over to McDonald's and borrowed a bucket off them and filled it up with water, and we picked the shark up and put it inside it and then drove it down to the breakwater and released it back into the water."


Oddly enough, this is the same thing I did last year with the baby left on my doorstep.

Aren't the fisherman planning on eating the fish? That's a little different than just throwing puppies out of a chopper over the Atlantic Ocean. I guess the newspaper people could've eaten the shark. I wonder what irony tastes like. Sweet, delicious irony.

Did it at least get its dick sucked?
 
2009-04-23 08:11:03 AM
If they wanted to get the point across, they'd have left it at any news station agency you choose to name. However, i would've left a carp. They're garbage eaters after all

So all we have is the officers words this happened? I smell frameup.

If only there was some sort of media-rich news distribution method capable of supporting images to include with the story. Alas, perhaps someday. *sigh*

"They had no ideas of any person that wished them any harm or wished to send them any type of message, so we're a little dumbfounded," he said.

Oh, I don't know, I'm guessing just some stupid, childish prank. A couple of guys go fishing at night, drinking a couple of beers and catch a small shark. Other than release it, there's not much else to do with it. They should have left it on McDonalds' door step. At least they could have turned it into a Fillet-O-Fish sammich.

You are correct. Even so the modus oporandi leading to ultimate death of the creature is the same regardless of the end use. Letting a creature suffocate for any reason either is or is not cruelty to animals. "We tortured the deer for fun" or "We tortured the deer but then we ate it". That is pretty clear because torturing the deer would be wrong regardless of the outcome. "We let the fish suffocate for fun" or "We let the fish suffocate so we could eat it". If the former is cruelty the so is the latter.

I think they would be more correct to charge the kids with wrongful death and allow a lawyer to sue them since, after all, lawyers are in fact predatory and shark like.

But the shark didn't die. It was more like Attempted Animal Cruelty. Or Attempted Shark Homicide or something.

True. Imagine, if you will, that it were a Jewfish (West Australian Dhufish), would they label the kids as Nazi extremists? "We will catch these fish torturing, Jew hating Nazi's and charge them with improper disposal of seafood."

I am sure if the shark could speak he would come up with some toothy reply...........................
