It’s shame­ful

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

I HAVE just re­turned from a trip away and was very sad and dis­ap­pointed to see your page 3 ar­ti­cle in the Gazette which states the “fish died dur­ing the fight” ( Gazette, Oc­to­ber 11).

Shouldn’t it have read that the “fish was killed while be­ing dragged around the ocean just for sport”?

How can a per­son say they had to fight this beau­ti­ful crea­ture when it had no means of re­tal­i­a­tion? They are not mon­sters.

Shouldn’t it be looked upon with shame like whal­ing? I’m sure our lo­cal tourist in­dus­try does not need this kind of ad­verse pub­lic­ity.
