    Default Sharks

    Should sharks be hunted of the west aus coast? That's what the government are debating. I personally don't think they should, as it's their home and we are invading and every human takes that risk when entering the ocean. The sharks don't know what we consider right an wrong. And if they started killing sharks for eating people who go Into their homes what about those horrible humans that do horrific stuff to other humans, should try be killed to?? I just don't believe in killing them.

    What do you think...

    No, they absolutely should not be killed. They aren't coming onto land and attaching humans. Humans are going into their domain.

    No don't believe they should be killed. You go into the territory at your own risk.

    Absolutely not. We know all the warnings about going into the water and we are still going into their territory. How can we expect them to know not to attack us just because we are human beings? It always amazes me when they go on a hunting expedition to kill the shark responsible for the death of a person. Wow they taught that shark a lesson hey?!?!? Maybe the others wont mess around with us human beings anymore. Dont get me wrong the death of a person who has been taken by a shark must be awful and devastating but Im yet to see a valid reason for hunting them down and taking their life.

    Nope. Perhaps we should go and kill all marine life in their home that pose a danger to us as humans whether it be by accident to take a bite or from protecting themselves.

    Sharks are beautiful creatures who are misunderstood.

    No. You take the risk of being attacked by a shark when you enter their territory.

    I am terrified of sharks! I don't go into the ocean because of my fear!! In saying that NO the shark shouldn't be killed but something needs to be done to stop the fatalities! It seems it's the big great whites who keep doing it, so perhaps a tagging system so authorities would know when those specific ones get one close to shore!
    This would not be an easy job but apparently hunting it down has been hard too!!
    Even more patrols in surfing locations might also help!!
