      Yes, I am aware of that story. It is a terrible thing that happened, however, it does not validate this scam. Many scams are based on an actual event.

        yeah, off of france they use stray dogs and cats, not exactly kittens but, really, THAT has got to stop, use chum, not animals

  • Zippocat

    if you don’t believe that real people out there never used cats or kittens as fishing bait for large sharks or marlins, you are dillusional

    Good morning, I don’t agree with everything in this write-up, but you do make some very good points. I’m very interested in this matter and I myself do alot of research as well. Either way it was a well thoughtout and nice read so I figured I would leave you a comment.

    Unfortunately it is true.This video may be a scam, but the practice does happen.

    I volunteer for a feral cat rescue group in Illinois and they received a kitten this past summer that was one of three rescued from people who were cutting them up and using for fish bait. And these people were fishing in the Fox River no less, just sitting under a bridge along the shore.

    No marlin involved , just Carp.

    I was horrified when I heard about it, and I am still horrified.

    Unfortunately this video might be a scam, but this is actually happening.
    I had never heard of using kittens as bait until standing looking in a pet shop window last week. In a shopping centre near Melbourne in Victoria Australia I overheard two men talking.
    One said he used 8 kittens and caught two sharks.
    I really thought I had misheard him, but after searching the internet I am shocked to find it is true.
    How much lower can so called humans go than using animals as bait for fishing?
    Words really do fail me, that grown men can resort to using a live kitten or any other animal just to fish. I hope I never come across these type of barbarians again.

      I used to use live crickets, locusts & frogs when I was like 10. They do the same thing to birds & lizards (okay, chickens & alligators) in the American South all the time. With Santeria & all the other weird cults being allowed to torture animals to death for their religious rituals, it’s no big surprise that some other freak uses kittens, baby monkeys or even infants as bait. Just because someone who likes torturing small animals isn’t a serial killer YET doesn’t mean hey get a pass – anyone who commits that kind of inhumanity deserves close INSTITUTIONAL observation…

    It is a common, yet illegal practice for shark fishing on the french island la reunion. Sadly, some scammers always try to get their money out of these things happening :(
