Refusal to Kill Sharks leads to Human Deaths

Kill those Sharks

Ankeny, IA

#1 Jul 16, 2013
A shark killed a 15-year old girl on Monday as she swam with mask and flippers a few meters (yards) from the shore of the Indian Ocean island of La Reunion.

It was the second deadly shark attack this year off the French island, which is just east of Madagascar, and brings to five the total of shark-related deaths there since 2011.


Shark fishing is not forbidden in La Reunion but there has been little fishing since 2009 because of a toxin currently found in their flesh that causes food poisoning. Locals say tiger and bull shark populations have multiplied as a result.

A spate of shark attacks last year off La Reunion prompted France to hire a team of professional fishermen to kill around 20 of them but Paris has refused to mount a more widespread cull.
