The sharks were here first and therefore should get first dibs at any parcel of the ocean. As a surfer, one would know that the threat is always there especially in areas of known shark breeding grounds. Often one has to worry about specific colors on their boards, or even putting on their wetsuit, because all of these attract the attention of sharks. I suppose one can say that it is basic 'nature'. But the reality is that sharks hate the taste of human blood. It's always a risk to get into the water, whether a surfer or a swimmer, or even someone playing off the shore, one must remember that the ocean is not our territory, and anything within those boundaries is an unforeseen risk.

... 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?

C'mon! Where are the libs? I'm really disappointed that they didn't jump right on this.

It's BUSH's fault, of course!

Could we not electronically tag the sharks then place bhouys around the coastline and if a sharks comes in close to shore it triggers a sensor which could be relayed anywhere you want so local authorities could then close the beach until the sharks have moved on ?

how about,.. we electronically tag all those who say 'lets kill them bad sharks so WE can swim in the ocean safely'

they are the boss of the ocean,, not humans.
get a swimming pool,

while it is sad for the family involved,these things will happen. .[play with fire,you may end up burned]
before man came along and sed' hmmm, this is a nice beach''
the shark was dropping by and grabbing a feed.

He caught and killed 39 Great Whites from 1973 to 1997 and has since produced documentaries on the feared creatures. "This shark will do it again," he said.

Funny how we accept human thought attributed to an animal only when it suits us! When someone claims a harmless animal is intelligent, folk laugh at the idea and shout " anthropmorphism".
No body can accept a simple animal with a larger brain than a shark can learn from experience yet they expect us to swallow the idea that a shark with a brain the size of a golfball, can not only learn, but act on what its learnt, and hunt humans after eating/killing one because it "tasted blood"

The solution is simple, sharks can be easily spotted from the air. Just a few light planes travelling the lengths of the populated beaches would be able to alert swimmers to a threat. Sharks shouldn't be killed just because they are acting naturally, they have no malivce in what they do - that's us the Human Race.

PS. Same goes for killing crocodiles when they eat someone They don't attack humans because they want to. We are just like any other animal to them.

People should stop judging animals as though they are capable of human emotions. We are the only animal which kills for sport.
