Stray dogs and cats are being skewered on hooks and dragged behind boats as live shark bait.

The cruel practice takes place on French-controlled Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean.

A six-month-old labrador pup was recently found ALIVE with a huge double hook through its snout
and another through a leg.

The pup was found in a coastal creek and is thought to have somehow freed itself from a fishing line.

But other dogs and kittens have been chomped up and swallowed by sharks.

 

PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION!
