It's important because sharks are important to our oceans and killing for the fun of it to see who can catch the biggest shark is just lunacy. We need to preserve our planets animals and the big ones have been around for years and deserve to live many more. It's like the big game animals in Africa, we've almost killed them all off and now we are working on the sea creatures, shame!! It has to stop today. This is what I am petitioning:
The 25th Annual Oak Bluffs Monster Shark Tournament on the harbor in Oak Bluffs is the preeminent sportfishing event of the 2011 Summer Tournament series. As always, expect world-class sportfishing, fine dining and excitement for all. The top five finishers will be awarded with a variety of highly valuable prizes and awards. Whether you're a prominent angler with a top placing boat from a previous year or just getting started in tournament fishing, you will want to be part of the excitement. Please join the Boston Big Game Fishing Club with your friends and family.
What kind of prize could be highly valuable for this tournament? The 325 pound shark? A trophy? No thanks. I don't see the fun in this, I see murder and it's just as bad as the dolphins in Japan, the whales and the shark finning...it's all for greed! There's no fun in greed.
