    It could be a very slippery slope here.....

    I might not want to post a video of bowfishing....or spearfishing....or Harpooning a big Tuna.... The fish huggers might not like it.

    I don't see it as much of a slippery slope.  The shark video was, imho, pretty obvious that morons were torturing a shark for no reason.  Additionally, they have a long history of doing such things, and were brilliant enough to record evidence along the way.  It isn't hard to see the difference between killing an animal for food versus torturing for fun.

    Agree....

    *BUT*  If you don't think that there are many who would view *any* spearing of a fish...regardless of whether it is for food or not as "torturing" a fish...You are mistaken......

    There are those out there that think a hook puncture is wrong....and the "poor fish" fighting for it's life...is mentally cruel....

    I'm not saying that the ruling was wrong...I'm saying.....Be careful how loud you cheer.

    I'm aware of crazy people who think killing animals is wrong.  They are nutzo as far as I'm concerned.
