The appalling shark massacre

The appalling shark massacre

Mis à jour le 05 March 2018

Exposing unimaginable violence, these images of shark fishing off the Peruvian coast are simply horrifying. One Voice had to act: in collaboration with its international partners, the campaign has been launched to put an end to this barbaric practice!

In Peruvian waters, sharks baited by dolphin meat are hauled onto the deck, where their noses are cut off and they are left to agonise in a corner. The pregnant mothers are gutted where their baby sharks are then trampled on. The images filmed by our partner Mundo Azul (Blue World) are disturbing but leave no doubt: this must stop!

Sharks aren't the most popular of creatures, which is probably why this appalling practice continues. But because they engender fear, does this mean that they do not deserve respect? Because their reputation is as bad as it is unfounded, can we allow them to suffer without consequence for their aggressors? They don't belong on the (illegal) menu in restaurants, nor on the market stalls. Their place is in the ocean, their home, where they play a fundamental role, impacting the balance of the entire planet…

These horrific images must lead to the end of these barbaric practices! One Voice is launching a campaign on behalf of the sharks. We have joined forces with Blue Voice, OceanCare and Mundo Azul to act locally with an information and awareness campaign for the Peruvians. In parallel, we are going to undertake spot checks in restaurants. Because it mustn't be forgotten, sharks are protected species!

And because international opinion counts, One Voice has launched a petition in France which will be addressed to the Peruvian ambassador.

To support our work; to save the sharks in Peru, please sign and share the petition!

C'est ignoble, je suis végétalienne et fière de l'être. Je ne supporte plus les massacre des animaux. Les ours enfermés dans des cages pour leur bile, les chiens, les chats en Asie, les laboratoires, la chasse, la fourrure, les abattoirs, les poules de batterie, les cochons de batterie, les veaux arrachés à leur maman et mis dans des caissons, genre de tente et ils y restent 6 semaines car, paraît-il, la viande est plus tendre, les cirques, les aquariums, le gavage des oies, la corrida, un petit veau tué par des apprentis-tueurs hurle de douleur autant que les taureaux, j'en oublie beaucoup <3 Merci One Voice pour votre travail.

A quand la fin de la barbarie ? A quand des peuples éduqués et civilisés ? Car quoi qu'on en dise, nous sommes de moins en moins éduqués à la vie, à son respect. L'homme ne se respecte pas lui-même alors le reste... A quand la tolérance ? On l'est de moins en moins. Bref, il pourrait y en avoir des pages.

L'homme est de plus en plus cruel ! Comment peut-il agir de la sorte?
