Shocking video has emerged online showing a group of fishermen in China brutally butchering a whale shark alive, cutting the majestic animal to pieces as it struggles for its last breaths.

The video was apparently filmed with a cell phone and uploaded on Weibo, according to the Daily Mail, where it immediately sparked outrage among animal rights activists and shark conservationists. Difficult to watch, the clip depicts a crowd of onlookers gathered around a whale shark as the giant animal struggles to breathe out of water. As the video begins, several men bring a crosscut saw to bear on the shark, slicing away its tail fin. They then go on to butcher the shark, cutting away sections of its body.

I get the fact that different cultures eat different things but I believe that animals should be killed in a humane way. There was no need to slice the animal while it was still alive.

I always fillet fish like that, I'm surprised how long catfish stay alive when it's just the head left

I'm all for eating animals ANY animal, but not when they are endangered. Why do you need to eat whale shark so bad? Eat some fucking tuna you bish.

On the other hand, the camera person decides to record vertical THEN turn it sideways. Nothing annoys me more...

Inflicting pain on the animal causes it to secrete adrenaline, I have heard some sea animals (dolphins for instance) that are eaten by eastern cultures are supposed to taste better and be considered a better quality cut if the meat has adrenaline in it. Whether this is actually true or not I have no idea, but it may explain why they do it this way.

The fact that it is a vulnerable & endangered species I do not agree with, but to be completely honest i couldn't care less how it dies... If you think for one second that any animal killed by humans or even farmed feels no pain at the time of death then you simply don't live in the real world. Animals in the wild almost always die a slow death whether they're being shaken apart by a dog or crocodile, or bleeding to death from a bite. How would one even go about killing a whale shark humanly and quickly, that thing is massive.

I am ashamed we share the same planet. I'm all for eating things, but kill them fast first. This is disgusting.

China allows people to work for pennies a day in slave labor, sorry iPod factories, and we get a "eh feh, suicide netting"

Kill a whale shark, oh boy, hold onto your hats!

You have to kill things somehow in order to eat them, but that is not the issue here. The Chinese just don't care. If the people in the video aren't chased after to be punished, that will suggest that the government doesn't care, either. I really don't think China can be a responsible superpower right now. There's just no way it can lead the world. Its government really needs a makeover. There are so many issues it's not even funny.
