Girl Learning To Fish Is Totally Shattered By What She's Done
Catch-and-release fishing might not be considered by most folks to be a particularly cruel sort of pastime, though as one open-hearted young person learned, it's not totally harmless, either.
In this video uploaded to YouTube, she is seen playfully posing with a little fish - the first she's ever caught - only to be left devastated after discovering that the amusing moment may have cost him his life.
It's all too easy to snicker and think that the wellbeing of lesser-loved animals, like this fish, matters little compared to those we esteem more highly. But even the most humble creature's life has value - and notions to the contrary can quickly crumble under the guilt of having taken it away.
