Usually, when one stumbles across a video of a kitten on the web, it’s to show them having a good time. This video, on the other hand, is a hard watch for anyone; especially cat lovers.
The sick fishermen involved justify their actions by saying that they were doing it, “Because of global warming.” What a pathetic excuse.
As a former cat owner myself, I couldn’t even imagine someone ever piercing a hook in the back of a defenseless kitten. Yet, that is exactly what these wealthy fishermen are doing for pure entertainment purposes. Rather than high-fives, these scumbags need to be given proper punishment.
If you’re wondering about the kites in the background, they are being used to suspend live bait just on the surface of the water. This method of “kite fishing” is over 500 years old and is said to be one of the most effective ways to fish. That being said, even fishermen 500 years ago never used cats as the bait.
Thank God for citizen journalism- who knows how long these men were doing this cruel activity before they were exposed.
