I guarantee if you came face-to-face with a Great White while you're just trying to go for a swim you would change your tune quick smart.
It's easy to sit back and judge the actions of others from the other side of the world where things are done differently. This reminds me of the time that their was a Kangaroo cull announced a few years ago and us Aussies had to put up with a whole bunch of people whinging about the "poor Kangaroos" without giving a single thought to the fact that they are in plague proportions in certain areas and can do great damage to crops and property.
• Each year there are about 50 to 70 confirmed shark attacks and 5 to 15 shark-attack fatalities around the world. The numbers have risen over the past several decades but not because sharks are more aggressive: Humans have simply taken to coastal waters in increasing numbers.

Yep, here they are - those whingers I talked about in my first post that sit back on the other side of the world telling us how we should be doing things down here, without having a clue as to the reality of the situation.
Out of 1,634,701 Km of worldwide coast line, they plan on setting a few hooks on 5 Km, in hopes that a few people can be protected from being eaten. Sounds reasonable to me.
Yes but they are going to bate these small areas with huge amounts of raw meat. How about I put a delicious 3 course meal on your dining table in your house and when yr attracted to it and sit down, boom goes the bomb under your seat? Yea that's fair game. I'm sure.
As far as I can tell you're just passive aggressive. No one has done anything but discuss the issues where as you verbally attack people,and for what? For where they are from in the world! I suppose you never make a thread or comment on threads to do with places other than Australia? Not too cool.
Be a shark hater all you like, and discuss your opinion openly, but dont use two line threads simply to hate on me or my fellow international ATS members for not wanting your government kill kill killing endangered species'.
