Why would we glorify this? It’s a nasty act by a scumbag.

Um that’s disgusting and cruel. I’m surprised this photo was posted – let alone called a ‘gem’.

I’ve never understood why potato gems are called gems either.

They are clearly not gems.

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…

You forgot people driving in the fast lane 20km/h under the limit..

The exception being people who dribble up to the traffic lights under the limit and then sneak through the orange leaving you with red. My feelings towards them incline towards a solution that is slower, messy, and public.

Aside from that LSWCHP ticks all the boxes.

Totally agree, whats the point of sitting on a swing if nobody is going to push you….

That sheet refers to Victoria’s carp laws incorrectly too.
The Victorian fisheries legislation refers to the introduction of noxious species. Carp are identified as noxious species in Victoria.
One carp fisherman in Victoria returned a carp to the water and was prosecuted for doing so.
He got off because he returned a fish to the water as opposed to introduced it.

Personally, I believe that anyone introducing carp to any water area should be beaten with a stick.

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.

Incorrect. There is no requirement to kill them in the ACT, NSW, WA or NT.

I for one was under the impression it was the law here in the ACT to knock them on the head once landed, but indeed you are correct.

Did snoop remove the fish after photographing it, so that kiddies who came to use the playground wouldn’t be upset?

This just makes me want to cry.

This is a definitely a sign of the impending apocalypse people.

The fishes are rising.

Don’t say you haven’t been warned.
