Some sad images from the roof tops of Hong Kong.
 
I'll let the images do the talking but there must be at least 4000 sharks...
 
A view of approximately 30 thousand shark fins left out to dry on top of a roof top in Hong Kong's Kennedy Town district, Hong Kong, China, 02 January 2013. Reports state that shark fin traders have taken to drying freshly sliced fins from sharks on roof tops in the city, since a public outcry in 2010 over them drying the fins on public sidewalks fored them to move the trade out of sight.
