Here's an example of unjustified cruelty for vanity. It just doesn't make sense that we would kill an animal for only its fin. Hunters like to justify killing by saying they eat the meat and use every part. That might be true - to some extent. I'm pretty sure only the Indians and Eskimos, who depended on wildlife for their survival used every part. They had to - they couldn't run down to Publix and buy whale blubber or buffalo. They also didn't have access to a mall for their clothing. I would like to think we've evolved to the point that we wouldn't simply kill an animal for a single part but it continues today. Dr. Khuly's article sheds an interesting light on the plight of the shark. I don't necessarily want to swim with them, but I don't want to see them exploited either.
