Shark finning is ugly on so many levels and here's one more. A gang attacked a man for taking pictures of shark fins drying on a Costa Rican dock.
Shark finning is plain wrong. The thugs in this story know that. Why else would they attack a cameraman?
The good news is that in Costa Rica, the same place where the attack occurred, a new law says fisherman must bring back the whole fish, not just the fins.
Culling the ocean of millions of sharks for soup is the poster child for abuse of the natural world.
Story here in Tico Times about the attack.
