    I don't agree with killing them. It doesn't bring anyone back and doesn't prevent future human deaths.
    It's terribly sad for those who are affected, but ultimately it happened because a shark was being a shark. . We shouldn't punish them according to a moral and legal code that they have no idea about! We take a risk every time we enter their domain.

    Leave the sharks alone, they are only doing what comes naturally ... the surfer was just in the wrong place at the wrong time ...

    yes .. I feel incredibly sad for his family ... but that grief will not be helped by the death of a shark

    I am PETRIFIED of being attacked by a shark but I know the risks when going into the ocean and can decide not to do so.

    Uhm no, last i checked that is their home, we choose to enter it knowing they are there.

    We wouldn't hunt other wild animals out of areas we enter just cos they attack us.

    Definitely not. They're probably hungry from the raping of our oceans by humans.

    No way!
    You enter at your own risk. As a surfer myself, I know that everytime I enter the water. I even told my family that if something was to ever happen, don't hunt the shark down. They do what comes natural. It makes me sick when you see people hunting down a particular shark, croc, etc because they have attack for survival.

    I'm sure if a shark grew legs and came onto land and ate someone, and we shot it, the other sharks wouldn't gang up and come onto dry land to hunt us down!!! (a bit far fetched I know, but you get the picture) bahahaha

    And yes, I feel extremely sad for the guy and his family, but he also probably thinks the same as me, and any other surfer.... Enter at your own risk

    No!

    Leave them alone.

    Like the dude on Q&A justsaid, as unfortunate as those 5 deaths are...compared to deaths on the roads it is minimal.


    Some humans think we have dominion over the Earth and verything in it - absolute rubbish.

    No- although it's always horrible to hear about someone getting killed by a shark, it is their home like the PP's have said.
