Catching and releasing sharks for fun is becoming a hot trend for some individuals on the Florida coast. One man in particular makes it a sport to find a shark, catch it on a line, then wrestle it to shore, letting it go after the brawl.

It's never fun for the shark to be injured and terrorized. And sharks are actually more delicate than many realize. Taking a shark out of the water, even for a brief period of time, can severely (and sometimes fatally) damage his internal organs which require the bouyancy of water to maintain health (since the shark's frame doesn't tend to support its internal organs out of water).

Nothing "fun" about this - it's just another form of animal abuse.
