when you hear something that sounds just too outrageous to believe, snopes.com is the place to go:

www.snopes.com/critters/crusader/sharkbait.asp

there's a good deal of info there. a basic summary: the practice is not unheard of, but also isn't commonly practiced or generally accepted as rumors would have you believe. also, this apparently more commonly happens with already-dead animals.

That is absolutely horrible. Will humans never stop torturing helpless animals?.Something needs to be done quickly to stop this.
