A blacktip sharks wriggles out of a bag to open sea and freedom in Pattaya, Thailand. I'm not sure how true this since the reporting is highly erroneous (such as fins are used as an aphrodisiac or sex food, which it is not seen as such!) At least there are people making the effort to stop them in a small scale.

Shark freed!

Nicely done Drew, to keep the topic in front of all that care. One shark saved is, hopefully, 6 pups born later!!

Hope folk are keeping track of the shark fin controversy taking place in San Francisco. Now proponents for shark finning are saying that a ban would be equal to social and religious discrimination. What a bunch of hog wash.
