Australia asks: should great white shark be protected?

Jul 16, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The First Post

WESTERN Australia has called for a review of whether the great white shark should continue to be considered a protected species after a five-metre specimen bit a surfer in two at the weekend in a grisly attack that has confirmed the Australian state as the world's most dangerous area for recorded shark attacks.

Of course it should be protected, its habitat is being destroyed, its food is being fished out... let's not send the great white the way many other species on this earth have gone...

Good heavens. I am a Western Australian and I think it is ridiculous to talk about culling sharks/removing their protected status. How many do we kill to make it safe to swim anywhere we like at any time? I thinking killing all might do the job! Any other number is difficult to justify! We need to accept that there are some risks in life. Pretty boring world if we destroy everything that is dangerous!

Damn right it should remain protected.
Humans have to realise when out of their element they may not be at the top of the food chain.

Feed the sharks on old humans who are dead anyway then
they will not need to eat live humans.
Humans are stealing the sharks food.
And now a giant fishing boat is permitted in Australian
waters.
Politicians in this country are destroying the fishing
industry just as the Canadian politicians destroyed theirs.
