OK to keep pet shark without a licence? (TODAY, 20060223)
For 5 years, Parc Palais, a private condominium property, has kept a nurse shark (now 2m long), and 2 black reef sharks (1m each), in a tank that's less than 2m wide. What does the AVA say to that? Keep the nurse shark, release the reef sharks! DUH! It's not just sharks that languish in captivity, Singapore also holds dolphins captive - like the sharks of Parc Palais, they too are denied thier right to a life in their natural habit. c
