The father of a teenager taken by a shark while swimming at an Adelaide beach yesterday says the family does not advocate the killing of any sharks.
Nick Peterson, 18, was killed by a shark at West Point beach while riding a surf board behind a boat.
The South Australian Government has authorised police and wildlife officers to destroy the shark.
His father, Philip Peterson, says the Government should instead electronically tag sharks known to inhabit metropolitan beaches

... maybe there is something in that - those sharks were pretty hungry by the sounds of it ... not enough seals, not enough fish in the sea - whose fault is that?
