Fishers using hermit crabs as bait!

Post by Theodora » Wed May 15, 2013 12:47 pm

OH MY GOODNESS!! I was watching a fishing video and fishers were finding Land Hermit Crabs, Cracking open their shells, taking the crabs out of the shell, chopping their claws off and sticking them on a hook! How cruel is that! And after they caught the fish, they let it go! They KILLED a HERMIT CRAB only to let the fish go!I am now sad and have tears in my eyes

Yes it's sad but its life, their not gunna stop doing it. A lot of things are unfair for animals but that's the way it is. I am not saying tos right, but it's unfair we eat animals and we hunt aniamals right? But we do it anyway,

I watched one of those videos ONCE and it still stays with me. Now I can't even click on anything like that, it's awful to see it. There are so many sad videos out there.

quote:Originally posted by Hermitcrabingrid:but it's unfair we eat animals and we hunt aniamals right? But we do it anyway, I don't really see how it's unfair to provide food for ourselves via hunting. I've hunted for 3 years and not killed anything, mainly because I'd rather just wait for the perfect shot instead of getting a gut-shot and having to walk all over tarnation looking for the animal. Out of all those three years, I could have killed countless does, and a few bucks, but I chose not to, because (on the bucks) I didn't have the best shot.Not all hunters are ruthless animal haters that kill everything in sight just for the heck of it, some like me and my family (and most of hunters to be honest) actually hunt to put meat on the table.I'm an animal lover, too, but when I can stock the freezer with some good meat, I won't pass up an opportunity.

Some people never entertain the notion that animals have feelings. They may be invested in a lifestyle where they can't afford to consider such a thing. Obviously the fisherman don't. The world seems much different for those who consider an animal's feelings. Hiking for instance, gets downright comical.

Poor Hermies! I seen a video where they use homeless cats on a hook to catch sharks. So sad

Speaking of the video about using land hermit crabs as bait, I saw another video of someone in a beach shop eating a dead land hermit crab for a bet of money ... Ughh this is ...
