Rosie O'Donnell slammed for posing with dead hammerhead shark
Washington, Jan 13 (ANI): Rosie O'Donnell has been criticised by environmentalist critics for posing on a boat with a dead hammerhead shark.
She had posted a series of photos featuring herself and her family with a variety of catches.
"Right now sharks are the most endangered animals around," Fox News quoted marine conservationist Erik Brush as telling South Florida's Sun Sentinel.
"This is basically an endorsement. It sends the message that it's an OK activity-and this is not an activity that we want celebrities endorsing," Brush said.
A picture posted on Miami-based fisherman Mark 'The Shark' Quartiano's web site shows a gleeful O'Donnell and her family posing by their kill with the caption, "This Month's Celebrity Angler."
"(O'Donnell) wouldn't go out hunting tigers. I don't see her pictured in front of some tiger strung up," Neil Hammerschlag, director of the R.J. Dunlap Marine Conservation Program said.
"Yet these are the tigers of the ocean, they're a top predator and they're in serious decline. Yet we kill them for sport," he added. (ANI)
