“The Vampire Diaries” fans who are also animal lovers might not be too thrilled with Steven McQueen, as he recently went shark fishing and boasted about it on Twitter.

Before we delve into McQueen’s photos, the actor who plays Jeremy on The CW hit did release the sharks back into the water, but do the animals deserve to be disturbed, frightened and/or injured?

Here’s what McQueen tweeted, “Shark fishing tonight. Caught and release a beautiful tiger shark. Fighting fears! [sic]”

The actor also made sure to get the point across that he was not killing the sharks, “All catch and release. These sharks are beautiful creatures. [sic]”

We wonder what McQueen’s castmates Ian Somerhalder, Paul Wesley and Torrey DeVitto have to say about his shark fishing adventures.

Somerhalder is all about protecting the environment and its creatures, especially through his organization the Ian Somerhalder Foundation. Meanwhile, Wesley and his wife DeVitto are avid animal supporters through PETA and the Humane Society.

It’s comforting to know McQueen did not kill the animals, but the shark in that picture was not released unscathed either.
