I hate to carp on about this, but school aged nippers will be using this at some stage. This is just bait to attract flies and tips the scales in favor of having the culprit strung up by the gills.
Gawd that stinks.

I know I’ll seem like a wuss, but it’s not a ‘gem’. It may be considered a pest, but it is also a living thing that deserves to be treated with some respect. And pity the poor person who gets the job of removing the stinking thing. Does no one think any more these days?

Errr… it WAS a living thing. Once it got caught it had to become a dead thing by law. And I don’t think the fish cared what happened to it after that moment in time.

Maybe I’m getting old and cranky, but leaving a couple of kilos of rotting flesh sitting on a childs swing in summer doesn’t seem all that cool.

Carp are vermin, but they should be killed quickly and their carcasses disposed of hygienically. The same goes for child molesters, rapists, recidivist drunk drivers etc etc…

I agree.

My kids have used that swing. I would find it more funny if the drop kick who left it there was given a good slap in the face with a dead carp.

I do agree (was just reacting to the “respect for dead fish” comment in my previous post). It is also great fun when people just leave them near the edge of the lake and you get that lovely aroma wafting past when you are sitting down for your picnic or worse, your dog decides it makes an awesome doggy cologne.
