Justice for Shark Brutally Shot to Death

Target: Alex Muñoz, Director of Animal Services Department of Miami-Dade Police Department

Goal: Ensure justice for shark allegedly shot to death by chuckling fisherman.

A hammerhead shark was allegedly shot to death by a Florida fisherman as it dangled helplessly from his rod. According to reports, the man shot the shark twice in the gill and chuckled as the poor creature bled out; the incident was said to be captured on video, and the shooter is currently assumed to be MTV reality star Alex Kompothecras. This incident comes much too closely on the heels of the shark dragged to death by a boat.

Sharks were once thought of as dangerous predators, feared by all, but this incident along with the aforementioned dragging, and the case of a beached shark used to open beer cans, is proving otherwise. Sharks are slowly joining the list of animals victimized by humans, and we must stop it before it goes any further. No animal deserves such abuse. Furthermore, it is illegal to shoot sharks in Florida waters.

Kompothecras is currently under investigation for the shooting, as well as for the aforementioned dragging and beer can stunt. Sign this petition to demand the truth be uncovered, and that the MTV star face justice if found responsible for the shooting.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Director Muñoz,

An MTV star is currently under investigation for his alleged shooting of a hammerhead shark in Florida waters. The animal was shot twice in the gill and bled out as it dangled helplessly from a fishing line; the incident was captured on video, and comes on the heels of another shark being dragged to death behind a boat, which star Alex Kompothecras reportedly has ties to as well.

The poor creature did not deserve such a painful death. Sharks have long been thought to be solely dangerous predators, but as this incident and the boat-dragging have proven, they are quite vulnerable and susceptible to human cruelty.

The investigation of Kompothecras must be as thorough as possible, and if he is discovered to be the one responsible for the shooting, he must face justice. This shark’s death need not be in vain.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Enough with the tap on the hand punishment for these idiots trying to gain tv fame. It’s time for maximum justice for animals who suffered traumatic deaths.

  2. Truly SICK mother fucker’s everywhere, and I don’t typically curse!!! SO disgusted, and disheartened with much of the human race, pathetic!!!

  3. Rosslyn Osborne says:

    “Ye must not only have kind and merciful feelings for mankind, but ye should also exercise the utmost kindness towards every living creature.
    The physical sensibilities and instincts are common to animal and man.
    Man is, however, negligent of this reality and imagines that sensibility is peculiar to mankind, therefore he practices cruelty to the animal…..
    In reality what difference is there in physical sensations! Sensibility is the same whether you harm man or animal: there is no difference. Nay, rather, cruelty to the animal is more painful because man has a tongue and he sighs, complains and groans when he receives an injury and complains to the government and the government protects him from cruelty; but the poor animal cannot speak, it can neither show its suffering nor is it able to appeal to the government.
    If it is harmed a thousand times by man it is not able to defend itself in words nor can it seek justice or retaliate…..
    Therefore one must be very considerate towards animals and show greater kindness to them than to man…. Man is generally sinful and the animal is innocent; unquestionably one must be more kind and merciful to the innocent”. Baha’i Faith Writings

  4. DROP THIS SICK SCUM INTO THE SEA AND SHOT THE BASTARD AND JUST LEAVE HIM THERE,SLOWLY BLEED TO DEATH, AND WE CAN SMILE.

  5. Chris Beauregard says:

    I would love to be the one to hand out the punishment to this sick, sick, sick individual and his buddies. Let’s get to the bottom of this and punish the cowards involved. PLEASE, PLEASE, EVERYONE PASS THE WORD ALONG TO OTHERS WHO CARE ENOUGH ABOUT THE TORTURE OF ANIMALS TO HELP DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

  6. Gene Sengstake says:

    Let’s face it – there are a lot of sick bastards in the world. These fishermen are just one of many examples. Too bad the law protects them from being dealt with in the fitting manner of which they deserve – – –

  7. This was a horrific act of cruelty to a poor shark. The fact that the perpetrator laughed as he did it shows his vile sadistic nature.
    I want to ask though, why some people who object to this cruelty close their eyes to the cruelty of fishing in general.
    Fishing is itself cruel. There is no humane fishing that I know of. Nobody involved in fishing cares about how the fish die or whether there is any suffering involved. Fish are suffocated, bludgeoned, bled out, disemboweled and killed in many other horrifying ways. They often die slow torturous deaths.
    Fishing needs to be recognized as a cruel industry because it is.

  8. Jacqui Skill says:

    What a dehumanized scumbag..do to him what he did to the hammerhead!

  9. MTV Star??? A useless piece of excrement!
    Someone should teach him a lesson because I am certain that the law will take his “status” in consideration. Best: an Eye for an Eye!

  10. So if this scum wants publicity by abusing animals, let him have publicity in jail where he deserves to be! !!!

  11. Diane Petrillo Diane Petrillo says:

    What’s up Florida? Churning out some serious psychopaths these days. For once will somebody with authority make an example of these pieces of shit. Public humiliation, fines, jail time (with sexual favors), etc. It’s only going to get worse if somebody doesn’t take a stand. This is so so cruel and disgusting.

    It is atrocities like what this monster Alex Kompothecras committed against a helpless Hammerhead Shark just for the thrill of the killing, when animal torturing monsters like this monster should be put to death.

  13. Lynne Cameron says:

    People that abuse and kill any animal should be severely punished. The idiot this did this should be given a harsh punishment. Only a matter of time before he kills another innocent animal. These animals should be swimming free not killed for the entertainment of deranged, brainless, evil morons.

    Too bad the shark didn’t bite off the tiny skin tag between the legs of the son of a bitch❗️?

    You are the biggest filthy scum of the earth
    You should be liquidated by this planet
    this mass murder of animals is inexcusable
    you are the life not worth
    god will curse you
