    pirahna video

    I think it is sick to film pirahnas attacking a goldfish.Im not one of those crazy peta people but its concerns me that you would film this.Im well aware that fish eat other fish in the wild.BUT why film it?Obviously you have Dahmer tendencies and need to seek immediate help.Take care,Shawn

    I can tell truly mature people filmed those. I think it’s sad when the highlight of someone’s day is watching a goldfish being torn apart, or have the urge to film and post it online.

    You didn't film it, but you did post it here. In some ways it is interesting to watch how after a while the 3 piranhas seem to almost work together to corner the goldfish, but I doubt the people who did film it were interested in studying hunting patterns. If you don't want to be criticized for what you post, then don't post it.

    The problem with posting that video here is that the majority of people here do not have predatory fish and prefer not to watch something suffer to death. There are better sites to post stuff like that.

    I'm not sure if I understand the moral outrage here correctly.

    Is it because someone filmed this?
    Is it because people have predatory fish?

    ...

    So far what I've seen, doesn't look any worse than what you
    can see on the discovery channel at any time of the day.
    And when I saw the headline piranha vs. goldfish, I kinda knew
    what I was clicking on...

    So what's the aggrevation about?
