Maggots used as fishbait

`Stray maggots are being skewered on hooks and dragged behind boats as live fish bait, The Moon can shockingly reveal.

The cruel practice takes place on French-controlled Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean, where Prince William spent two holidays.

A six-minute-old maggot pup was recently found ALIVE with a huge double hook through its body – like the maggot above – and another through the end.

The pup was found in a coastal creek and is thought to have somehow freed itself from a fishing line.

But other maggots and pinkies have been chomped up and swallowed by fishies.

The RSPCA plans to petition the French government, demanding an end to the hideous torture.’
