Casselberry, Fla. -- When 11-year-old Thomas Ponce, a
sixth-grader at Casselberry's South Seminole Middle School, recently
encountered an angler who had just caught a shark and planned to eat the
animal, he began to plead for the shark's life. Thomas explained that sharks,
like humans, are living, feeling beings and have every right to live. Moved by
Thomas' sincerity and conviction, the man finally told him to go ahead and set
the shark free. That's just one of many reasons why Thomas has won a Compassionate Kid Award from PETA
"The kindness and drive that this 11-year-old has
demonstrated should serve as an inspiration to people of all ages," says
Associate Director of Youth Outreach and Campaigns Marta Holmberg. "Thomas
reminds all of us that you're never too young to speak out against cruelty to
the most vulnerable among us."
The following list of Thomas' accomplishments so far could
proudly be claimed by someone two or three times his age:
Thomas—who aspires to be an animal rights attorney—will
receive a framed certificate and a letter of appreciation from PETA Kids.
