Talking of Evil...

... this is sure hard to beat.

Apparently, some fishermen in the Australian Northern Territory have gone out on a rampage and snapped the back and then dumped dozens upon dozens of Sawfish (or Saw Sharks), critically endangered animals, to prevent them from getting entangled in their nets.

Kudos to Primary Industry Minister Kon Vatskalis for having enacted a 3-month fishing ban as a consequence. I sure hope that the other commercial fishermen will make it a point to personally go and thank the perpetrators for having lost their income!
