Some dudes got their 15min via  The Early Show wah-wahing about how they were “forced” to shoot and kill a tiger shark while spearfishing.

Of course, they got it all on tape. Apparently Casey Affleck was there, just in case. The shark said, “I got a million dollars in the bank, what have you got, bitch?” And the divers were like, “A spear, bitch!”

But all joking aside, the tiger shark is an endangered species, and maybe if they tried, oh I dunno, getting out of the freaking water, they wouldn’t have to struggle for TWO HOURS to bring it down. The shark was not attacking them, it was drawn by the energy and blood trail it sensed from the struggling fish. Any spear fisherman knows that sharks are almost a guaranteed hazard of their hobby/trade. What these guys did was completely uncalled for. Check out some of the comments left on the CBS News message board:

I spearfish….that’s a load of crap….they shot that shark on purpose……I’ve been approach by sharks that size and basically if you leave them alone they leave you alone…..those guys are idiots…don’t listen to a word they say.

The other two bozos were able to freely swim from their boat to kill this curious shark – they were in no danger if they calmly left the water.

Just ask any surfer – they have almost all seen them cruise by and leave…

Here’s the LINK for the video. I don’t post the slaughter of any animal on my blog.
