We are in the ocean to play, not to live.
Our arrogance has already destroyed so much.
We need the balance that each animal brings to the whole circle.
Every time we think we can control the animal kingdom with a managed solution, we just fuck things up.
Mr. Sharky is scary and I would not enjoy kiting in WA, but the worlds oceans are in trouble already, let's not talk about making it worse just so we can play with no fear.
I get it you are afraid, and that fear is real. It is entirely normal to have fears, what I protest is that exterminating something is ever even talked about as a solution.Westozzy wrote:Look I agree with the conservation perspective, but some of you need to get real and get off your philosophical high horse. Real people with real families have lost loved ones and it is increasing.
One could also surmise that the over fishing may also be one cause of shark attacks. Never heard of an attack north of the 26th parallel. Always thought they were too well fed. The whale migration is also a factor.
but yes it is a choice to go in the water I agree. This is a hard one. Just imagine it was your daughter or son taken by a shark, would you be so gregarious and altruistic then>
A regular opinion on those "I was attacked by a shark" shows, is that they don't blame the sharks... personally, if it was my daughter or son, I'd be less pissed at a shark, doing what it does, than at some dickhead behind the wheel of a car.Westozzy wrote:Just imagine it was your daughter or son taken by a shark, would you be so gregarious and altruistic then>
Probably Bull sharks - they're the postal workers of the ocean. Great Whites are not IIRC that high on the list of "attacks humans" so it's odd that there's a concentration in W.A. of White attacks...edt wrote:sharks be eating people in margaret river for the same reason that lightning strikes people in florida all the time, it's not because god hates florida and bolts them, that's where the people are out all day golfing.
