WTF is the matter with people?

LONG BEACH, Calif. - Four teenagers were arrested for allegedly killing two sharks that were dragged from their aquarium tanks and tortured to death, police said.

The vandals broke into the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach between 6 p.m. Sunday and 9 a.m. Monday when it was closed, police said.

A 3-foot-long nurse shark named Michelle was found dead in bushes near her tank while an 18-inch bamboo shark was tossed onto an exit structure, said Perry Hampton, director of animal husbandry.

Also killed was a cow-nosed ray, a relative of the string ray, which appeared to have been stabbed and pounded with a pole, Hampton said.

"We were all very sickened by what happened to these animals," aquarium spokeswoman Cecil Fisher said after Monday's discovery at the popular Shark Lagoon exhibit.

The unidentified teens, ages 13 and 14, were caught while allegedly trying to break into the aquarium a second time Monday night, police said. All four were in custody Tuesday night.

"There was nothing that indicated gang affiliation (or) anything against the animals," said police Officer David Cannan. "It was just them doing what they did."

Michelle was one of the first animals in the exhibit when she was introduced in 2002 and was about 5 years old but could have lived to be 30 and reached 9 feet.

Long Beach is about 20 miles south of downtown Los Angeles.

- Unbelievable. Feed them to the sharks, or death penalty. How anyone could do something like that I'll never understand.

obviously, and i am totally serious here, the parents of these little bastards did not beat them regularly, and often, when they were younger.

incarceration will be their ultimate end. as well it should be.

Bah. Same **** should be done to them... stabbed, beatin with poles, stomped, and tossed into the bushes.I know that can't be done, but what do you really do? Won't be long before the little bastards are doin that to humans. And if you just stick them in a juvenile detention place, they will just end up products of the prison system.

Oh I'm sure! I realize that EVERYONE has issues, but Jeebus! What would drive those stupid idiots to do something sooo F*in stupid is beyond me. Just like tese mother's who kill their children. NOTHING pisses me off more than people who do sick and sadistic things to either a person or an animal. It's revolting!

Yeah, they'll get community service at most. We'll hear from them again when they reenact Columbine in a couple years. So, that begs the question. .who's more stupid, the kids, or society for letting them get away with it?

obviously they have some anger issues and are fascinated with death. give them a choice of prison or the military and send them to Iraq...That will quench their thirst for killing and death for the rest of their lives.

Jesus. Can't people just club seals like they used to? What is wrong with the old drop the cat off a 13 story building to see if it lands on its feet. Why are you messing with the helpless sharks for christ sake? These are probably the same people jumping into the Lion's cage to convert them to Christianity. Can't you people just hop up a hamster on speed and wire its cage with piano wire or something more productive? Give the neighbor's dog a hit of acid or something. Man, kids today are just SO out of control.

Kids these days but you all are right... They may get slapped with some community service but thats all. What a load of crap. People have to pay for that crap and I feel that if you do some crime then you should do some time... Something more should be done other than community service...

Tippy has spoken everyone. And thats not offten.

Anyways. I agree. More should be done to them then just community service. That will work for starters.

Its thoes damn liberals that have taken away our rights to parent (disipline, punish)our children, time out doesn't work and when you get one back that the ex has already let go too far and nothing works the only thing you are left with is that good old fasion azz whooping, you know the kind, just this side of being abuse. well thats where I think I am. I know that my son is lucky that its not 10-20 years ago because he would find it very hard to sit. So It is hard to place blame if you don't know the parental situation, the blame could be placed to the parents, or laws or maby the kids are just sh!theads and there isn't anything you or anyone can do about it.

I cannot even begin to tell you the horror stories I have seen and heard of animals being beaten and tortured! It makes me sick what people do to helpless beings who can't defend themselves, such as any type of animal. Those kids should serve out community service in an Animal Control facility, then serve jail time, also punishment for the parents. Its a proven fact that (dont know exact percentage but like 80%) of those who start out abusing animals move up to murder, rape and violence against humans. I do hope someone beats their arse one day like that tho. So sad & maddening!

Absolutely. Idiots. They are no different than punk as$es who beat their wives or rapists that prey on weaker women, etc. They deserve to be sodomized repeatedly in prison or something. Although I guess no one bit the hook on my outlandish reply, you people know me far too well - this is scary, of course you could tell I was totally joking. I am a huge conservationalist and I have utmost respect for all life and the respect it deserves and it makes me sick when mindless idiots do this crap.

I think they should drop the kids off at the zoo.... right in the polar bear pit. Of course after they are sprayed with fish guts, so the bears will be sure to want them.

Of course, if the bears ate the kids, they would kill the bears.
