Default Huge increase in shark attacks.

National Geographic is reporting about the huge increase of shark attacks worldwide. And how the sharks are over populating along our beaches killing off the tourism in a lot of popluar beach resorts. Warning! Do not go into the water until the scientist find out why, they actually said that.

One theory was because global greenies had them put on the protection list. It was amazing, one country Australia saw an increase this year alone setting a record of 22 attacks, five fatal. Since 2010 that's an
increase of 45% over the past decade. And is considering a lift on the ban.

It was grusome, two sharks ripped a surfer apart. The tourist industry wants something done, and done now. Lift the ban and put a bounty on them. Kill em kill em all.

For once I see liberal conversationist agreeing with us. Something is wrong, and hunting extermination may be the only solution. The small island of French Renew is about bankrupt, with more attacks and deaths than Australia. They have protest they want the sharks dead.

Even the fishing industry is suffering due to this. The game fish are leavening their usual areas.

Ask yourself this. If your brother was ripped to shreds and eaten alive. How would you feel?

Which brother? You know, you can throw a few liberals and democrats into the water - lure them, so to speak, with freebies; they take the bait all the time. Not a bad metaphor there, eh? Then use what's left to go fishing for, guess at it, sharks. Or go shoot them Elmer Keith style, with a 4" 44 magnum and a box of his 245 gn cast semi-wadcutter over 22 grains of 2400 powder; one shot, one shark. There, problem solved. Fewer liberals, fewer sharks. And you can always claim self defense, against the liberals of course .............. Just sayin' ...............

Why not? They make 44magnum bang sticks. Get right down there in the water and show us your stuff.

Just stay out of the water. Too much flesh eating bacteria also. Swimming in the Ocean is highly overrated.

All of my favorite creatures have white bottoms.

There have only been about 3,000 documented shark attacks worldwide since the 1500s. Being on bad meds is a lot riskier.

Problem is if no one saw the attack or survived it is not counted as a shark attack from what I understand... like counting confirmed kills. Ya need a witness.

Not to mention WWI and WWII. I'm sure the numbers are much higher than 3,000. South Africa alone has higher than that. It depends on when that number was tabulated and how old that data is. Bull Sharks can
live in both fresh and sea water. One got into a canal in Mississippi and killed two young boys who were swimming.
