You might find this previous discussion interesting with regards to attitudes to eating shark's fin. The topic starts off talking about weddings, and diverts off onto shark's fin about 2/3rds down page2, at 9.30pm 15th dec...poodlek wrote:I'm sure I'm preaching to the choir here, but having been to a wedding last week where I was served shark fin soup (AND sea cucumber-barf!) I feel like posting on facebook about it wasn't quite enough. Another friend of mine shared this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r65FgUYdBOc
which pretty graphically shows what exactly happens to get all those fins into bowls in Asia. Disgusting. I can't even get my head around people who know this is what is happening and are still ok with it. Would these same people be happy with eating an endangered rhino steak too, if the prestige were high enough? C'mon.
