Pregnant Shark killed for Trivial interests

Shark Caught Had 55 Pups Set to be Born

In our speciesist society, fishes are often regarded as being not part of the animal kingdom, and are therefore denied basic rights, such as the right to life, freedom, body integrity, right to live free from human exploitation.

On the 23rd May 06, a hammerhead shark was captured and killed in boca Grande, fla.
Being pregnant with 55 pups, she was killed when the pups were nearly full-term and a few days from birth.
The scientists at Mote Marine laboratory today released results of the autopsy and said they wished the fishermen hadn’t kept the fish as she was heavily

pregnant.
This is a classic example of how the interests and rights of a nonhuman animal are ignored to satisfy the frivolous interests of humans.
