    No! I don't agree with the slaughter of animals. They are just doing what's in their nature.

    I think it's repulsive that the answer is to murder them

    They were there first... Leave them be...

    *most* attacks by Great Whites at least are testing bites.... Whites tend to not like the taste of human...
    Tiger & Bulls are a different story.

    In Victoria at least, if the ranger decides your dog looks {not acts, they don't need proof} like it might be dangerous one day, they can legally go onto your property without your permission, seize and destroy your family dog.

    The point is to destroy all dogs of a particular size, colour or shape regardless of whether they present a danger to society or not.

    That's no more fair, just or logical than killing all sharks based on the actions of one.
    That's awful!!

    No way.

    I don't want to get hurt by various ocean-dwelling creatures, so I rarely venture into the sea. It's THEIR domain. It's like entering a bear's cave and then b*tching that you got attacked. How about if you don't want to get attacked, you stay out of the ocean... or just accept there's a risk of it happening, though minimal, when you enter the ocean and suck it up?

    I think slaughtering animals because WE think WE deserve to have a dip in the ocean is so arrogant.

    They're actually doing worse; there was a discussion at the MDBA this year where a representative was putting forward the idea that since banning certain breeds hasn't worked {wonder why? It's such a perfect plan }; instead they'll ban anything over 25kg.
    This is so if a child is bitten, they have a higher chance of surviving.

    All dogs that will be over the weight limit at their adult weight will have to keep to restricted breed limitations- they will have to be a concrete floored pen 24/7, unless they're being taken to the vet. In that case, they will have to be muzzled and wear a dangerous dog collar, and only be around people over 18 years of age.
    No time out of the pen at all, not even walks, playing, training or even being allowed inside with their family on a cold night.

    Can you even imagine the mental damage that would do to an 8 week old puppy?

    Thankfully it's been shot down, but I hope they don't keep trying in the next few years.

    I have no idea how politicians come up with this kind of rubbish; like shark slaughters. It makes no logical sense whatsoever.

    We are in their territory. Whatever happens we have to suck it up. Or not go in the water.....
