It is ridiculous that the idea of "culling" the shark population was even suggested. Obviously the issue of rising shark attacks in Western Australia is attributed to the statistics included in the article rather than sharks becoming more hungry for humans. As the article says the rise in attacks has been caused by a combination of the rising Western Australian population (= more people swimming at the beaches) and the rising number of sharks in the water due to the reduction of commercial fishing and protection of certain shark species. People should not fear shark attacks any more than they had in the past!

I really can't see real arstralian sharks attacking arstralians. They were probably Lebanese sharks, or Samoan Sharks or even Indian sharks but not good ol arsie sharks!
