Dog Is Facebook group about dogs-as-shark-bait fact or fiction?

If you're a Facebook addict and I know you're out there you've no doubt seen countless fan pages and groups. Some real, some fake, some humorous, others serious.

One that a lot of my friends seem to be joining lately is 'Stop dogs being used as shark bait!!'.

According to, it is entirely possible that some amateur fisherman do this, but that "the practice does not appear to be as widespread or horrific (or tolerated) as implied by some news stories."
