Shark Fin Soup: Underground Animal Rights Group Threatens To Spread Poison In Toronto’s Chinatown
An underground animal rights group is threatening to spread rat poison in Toronto’s Chinatown and poison food at Mandarin buffet restaurants, the head of the Toronto Chinese Business Association told The Huffington Post Thursday.
Barbara Chiu, the group’s executive director, said she received a letter in the mail Tuesday from an organization calling itself Animal Liberation Canada/USA upset with the group’s decision to fight a city of Toronto ban on the sale of shark fins.
“They see us, the Chinese, having lost the battle in the shark-fin ban … And at the end of the letter it mentions that they are going to spread rat poison in Chinatown and in a particular Chinese restaurant as well,” Chiu said. “They mentioned a Mandarin restaurant, you know the Mandarin Buffet?”
“We are a radical group of “concerned” who protect all wildlife. Warning to y’all. We now have folks in your Chinatowns spreading rat poison on meant, fish, fruit and vegetables. Hopefully some of you will be sick as a dog, which by the way you animal killers eat as well,” the letter states.
Police were notified on Wednesday and the issue was passed along to the hate crimes unit, Chiu said.
The letter begins: “Hey, how’s it going guys? I see you lost the big shark fin ban in Toronto. Thank God, less sharks suffering a painful death in the hands of you barbarians.”
It continues: “You gooks come over here and don’t speak a word of English and don’t teach your kids English. The only English you know is, “you give me free.”

THE SCUM OF THE EARTH ALWAYS FIND A WAY TO MURDER THE INNOCENT!
With only spines attached, shark fins come ashore.
Foreign fishing ships are bringing in shark skeletons – the flesh shaved away – with just their fins attached to the body. Local fishermen see this as another way that fishing fleets are evading shark finning laws.
Despite recent measures to crack down on the practice of shark finning, Costa Rican fishermen and environmentalists believe that foreign fleets are once again using methods to evade Costa Rican fishing laws and regulations.
In recent months, three Taiwanese ships landed shark fins attached only to the shark’s spine at the public dock in Puntarenas. The sharks’ flesh was shaved away from the sharks’ spines, leaving only skeletons attached to full fins.

Sea Shepherd Offers $10,000 Reward for the Conviction of New Jersey Whale Killer
Sea Shepherd Conservation Society wants the person(s) responsible for killing a pilot whale in New Jersey to be caught and punished. To that end, Sea Shepherd is offering a reward of USD $10,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible. The 11 foot-long short-finned pilot whale suffered for a month before dying on a New Jersey beach in Allenhurst, a small Monmouth County town just north of Asbury Park, on September 24, 2011. The necropsy performed by authorities confirmed that the whale had been shot. Although the wound had partially healed, the .30 caliber bullet festered in the whale’s jaw preventing it from eating. The cause of death was starvation. The 1972 Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA) protects whales; therefore killing a whale is a federal crime. If convicted, violators of the MMPA can be fined up to $100,000 and sent to prison for a year. According to the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration, there are approximately 31,000 pilot whales, both long and short-finned, in the western North Atlantic Ocean. There are an additional 300 or so off the west coast of the United States, about 8,800 around the Hawaiian Islands, and 2,400 in the northern Gulf of Mexico. “Sea Shepherd has had success with our reward programs in the past,” Said Sea Shepherd Founder and President Captain Paul Watson. “I am hopeful we will see the person(s) responsible for this cruel and illegal killing be brought to justice.” If you have any information on who may be responsible, please make a report to your local police department, or contact Sea Shepherd at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Reports to Sea Shepherd will be kept confidential upon request. Sea Shepherd will not disclose the name of anyone who comes forward with evidence that leads to the arrest and conviction of those responsible without the express written permission of the informant.
In order to claim your reward if the suspected whale killer(s) is convicted, please ask the law enforcement agency involved in the case to write a letter to Sea Shepherd. The letter should state that your tip helped lead to the arrest and conviction of the New Jersey whale killer(s). The letter should be mailed or faxed to:
Sea Shepherd Conservation Society P.O. Box 2616 Friday Harbor, WA 98250 USA fax: +1 360-370-5651

Sharks ‘in trouble worldwide’
Sharks are in big trouble on the Great Barrier Reef in Australia and worldwide, according to scientists who claim to have developed the world’s first way to measure rates of decline in shark population.
“There is mounting evidence of widespread, substantial, and ongoing declines in the abundance of shark populations worldwide, coincident with marked rises in global shark catches in the last half-century,” said lead scientist Mizue Hisano at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies.
He added, “Overfishing of sharks is now recognised as a major global conservation concern, with increasing numbers of shark species added to the International Union for the Conservation of nature’s list of threatened species.
“First, many countries with coral reefs don’t keep reliable records of catches or fishing effort. Second, around 75 per cent of the world shark catch consists of illegal and unreported finning. Third, sharks may be caught, discarded, and not reported when fishers are targeting other species.”
The scientists have developed several alternative models, which combined birth rates and growth rates for sharks with a variety of different methods for estimating mortality.

Catch of the Day: Plastic Surprise - Galveston Beach, TX
To bring some attention to ocean pollution and just how disgusting it really is, Surfrider Foundation teamed up with Satchi & Satchi LA to create “Catch of the Day.” Simply and brilliantly, they collected actual trash from beaches around the U.S., packaged it like food, and left it on display at farmer’s markets
Catch of the day. Humans dump it expecting our wildlife to eat it!
