waw! - i juste read the previous messages. No i mean no one can accept someone tortures dogs or any animal for fun or sports or whatever. And Reunion people got really disgusted when the media came up with this info. No one accepts this fact, and except some crazy fishermen, no one did neither here in Réunion Island!
sorry for my english and see you soon guys

- ... and don't fisherman all around the world tend to throw sth living in the water to catch whatever they are "sporting" after ... no worries, i don't have a problem with fishermen - just not my sport. But that "do-good" boykotting shit send me up the wall. Beautiful island, treat it with respect. - Ah yeah and that dog-fishing is a little bizarre.

just got back from reunion - just got back from reunion, and to think that we should boycott an entire island because of the workings of a select few has to be one of the stuppidest things i have ever heard...it is as though a country such as Australia should be judged entirely on the way it treats refugees.... it is not the country as a whole but individual idiots...boycott the idiots...but dont generalise...reunion is awesome...awesome people...awesome food (creol) and awesome surf...watch out for the sea urchins though....

yeah, but... - You must admit that assholes are all around the world, like islands. Reunion is no exception to that. However this story is real but concerns just a fraction of a percentage of the nearly 800 000 inhabitants.

Concerning sharks, the fact is this island is risky. Past meat processing factories, located by the sea, with unrespectful waste practices, attracted among other for sure, bulldogs & tiger sharks.

Locals know where & when it's most risky. Ask them. Reunion island people are cool. Actually one of the friendliest among French overseas territories.

There is quite an incredible mix of culture, and culture tolerance. Food is... :-) Weather ... surf ... laid back culture ... green mountainous interior, mauna kea type active volcano (but also traffic jams & many people on a rather small island).

Don't believe what from a true story develops a generalisation on what is and hopefully will stay, a welcoming and beautiful country.

that's dumb - yeah, boycott reumion and punish the whole island because of how a few fisherman do business. while we're at it, lets boycott indo too because the fishermen there use dynamite and cyanide to catch fish, decimating coral reefs. while the suffering may not be as intense, the ecological impacts are felt the world around. anyone down w/ that? I didnt think so

boycot reunion - I heard that about the dog fishing and i agree, this island should be boycoted for sure until they stop doing it. They must be sick in the head to do that shit. fuck reunion until it stops

Feed live dogs to sharks - These scumbag local french pricks put hooks through dogs top lips and fish for sharks while the poor dog is still alive! Fucking Arseholes. People should boycott this island until they do something about this.

I need informations - Hi everyone, Please, I'd like you send me the adress and contacts of Reunion Island federation of surfing. Thank you very much.
