image for Theme park reinstates shark fin soup on menu

(Hong Kong, China) Bowing under pressure from Chinese tourists, the newest Asian theme park has reneged on a deal with animal rights advocates and reinstated shark fin soup on its dining menus.

"The broth is a status symbol to the Chinese people," said a theme park spokesperson. "We receive thousands of requests for it every day."

The theme park also won't be passing out pamphlets describing the inhumane industry to its customers.

The popularity of the bland tasting soup has resulted in the decimation of several shark species that are baited, harvested, and then dumped back into the ocean's depths to die.

There has been a huge surge in shark fishing in anticipation of the upcoming Olympic Games in Beijing. Environmentalists are appalled by the numbers of fins they're seeing on the market.
