Increase in Sharks Being Attacked by Humans

A recent incident of a shark being dragged behind a boat makes this story about sharks being attacked in Cayman hard to read.

If you're local you know that a big deal was made of an idiot that decided to drag a shark behind his boat in order to kill it. As disgusting at the entire incident was attacking and killing and injuring wildlife just for the hell of it (?) is not all that uncommon. Officials in the Cayman Islands, for example, are issuing a statement to people to stop doing just that. A shark was found with a knife wound while another was freed from rope tied around its neck. This sort of behavior is just disgusting and not acceptable in a civiized society.
