Petition Closed

The show shark wranglers catches sharks to do "research" on them by fishing for the sharks. While fishing for the sharks they tend to get tangled around the anchor line of the ship or the shark gets wrapped up in the line while it's becoming stressed out. Then when the shark is on the lift of the ship it is out of the water for up to 20 minutes and sometimes longer. This can and does sometimes result in the death of the shark. 

Letter to
The History Channel
I just signed the following petition addressed to: The History Channel.

Dear History Channel,

I am writing you today to request that the show Shark Wranglers be cancelled. Shark populations are in decline in the overwhelming majority of areas where sharks exist, this is due to many factors, including but not limited to netting/long-lining and shark finning. The very basis of this show is a signification of might over right and is a spectacle of dominance over
another species. The killing of sharks is not research, nor is it morally acceptable in todays society. A show such as Shark Wranglers has no educational benefit to the public. In fact, it has
no benefit at all. Sharks must be portrayed in a positive light, shows like Shark Wranglers are distorting views on sharks even further, making individuals think that it is justifiable to kill them.
