Canada’s Shark Fin Soup
They don't just club seals to death in Canada, they also catch sharks for their fins. The fins are used in the famous shark fin soup from Asia. The soup is seen as a symbol of power, wealth and prestige and as more and more people, especially in China, start making loads of money the demand for shark fin soup continues to grow. The sad thing is that the fins only provide the texture of the soup and none of the flavor. Make of this what you will, but to me personally it is just a sad sight to see such majestic animals killed for their fins because some guy on the other side of the world wants to show off.
