This is what humanity’s obsession with selfies has led to…

- Shocking actions were reportedly captured on video near the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

Everyone wants to pretend they are living the perfect life on social media, which is why certain individuals will go to extreme lengths to capture photographs with exotic animals and marine wildlife.
This first became clear when tourists in Argentina passed a baby dolphin around so they could take selfies with it – effectively killing it in the process. Then, two idiots dragged a shark from the ocean to pose with it for pictures.
Not long after, an aggressive female made headlines when she grabbed a swan by the wing and towed it after her for the sake of a photo.
Humanity, your narcissistic tendencies are showing.
Now, news has surfaced of two fishermen, named Josh Butterwort and John Bonnitcha, deliberately nabbing not one, not two – but ten sharks during their fishing trip.
Every year, humans kill 100 million sharks, and many are captured and slaughtered for their fins, while others are killed as a result of by-catch. This is a travesty, as sharks play a vital role maintaining balance in the ecosystem and, in effect, combating climate change. This study explains all.
