The end of the chase.

I have no problem eating animals, and I've caught lots of fish in my lifetime and no doubt will catch a few more,  but I admit to being a little squeamish at the concept of catching them for sport.  

On the one hand this little (bigger than he looks and of legal "keeping" size) guy was released and sent safely on his way no doubt with adrenalin pumping through his system.   On the other, is there any other animal which society would tolerate having a hook thrust into its body and dragged to the point of exhaustion without raising a hue and cry?

Oh, there's bullfighting!

I dislike the taste of seafood, so I've never gotten into fishing.
