Facebook Photos Show Abuse of Sturgeon

Locals recently dragged a shark behind their boat for Facebook kicks. This sturgeon has a similar fate. It is bad behavior.

If you are from around the West Central Gulf Coast of Florida like we are, you might be aware of a local and a few friends regularly posting images and videos on Facebook of them killing stuff. They fed dogs to sharks, they drug a shark behind their boat until it drowned, and held white pelicans in a way that could not have resulted in a safe release.


So when we saw this story from the Vancouver Sun about a group of idiots mishandling a sturgeon, we figured it would make a good read. We really have to be good to our environment and the creatures that live there. Release what you're not going to eat that night; keep your hands wet, and respect yourself and our resources.

Here's the whole story.
