Discovery's "Shark Week" Abuses Emma, Tiger of the Bahamas

Discovery's Shark Week starts tonight, portraying sharks just as dishonestly as ever. The company will be raking in a fortune on the backs of sharks as a result. Through their use of sharks for profit in horror shows, Discovery is responsible for erecting a virtually impenetrable barrier to the protection of these threatened marine species, which are being massacred to extinction.

Here is a video of one of their film crews abusing the beloved Emma, a sociable tiger shark of the Bahamas.

  2. A filthy marketing stunt - that´s what Shark Week is, and the Discovery greedy directors will never change it. What a sad requiem for a channel that once pretended it was educational.

  4. I used to work in the Bahamas and constantly heard rumors of one of the live aboard boats baiting the water in the same way to fish for tiger sharks in order to pull them out of the water like a trophy for guests to take photos of the sharks. Talk about not being environmentally aware!
