An email sent to Sharkman: (couldn’t have said it better myself!)
I am in Ft. Lauderdale where I vacation once a
year and am always
wary about sharks.
Call me crazy, but I don't trust them.
Like you, I have never believed all the crap
that these defense attorneys for sharks
spew out in the wake of a grisly shark
Regardless of how badly the shark mauls
the victim there is always an 'excuse'
which seems to put the blame on the human
victim: "Mistaken identity, the shark felt
that his privacy was invaded or the person
did something to 'provoke' the attack
(yeah,something like breathing, kicking,
paddling, surfing, wading, snorkeling,
and the short list of things humans are
capable of in an aquatic environment.)
I've always asked "Who interviewed the shark
afterwards to discern his intentions?"
Maybe he set out to kill a swimmer for
sport, maybe he hates humans, maybe he
had a taste for human flesh that day- how
the hell do we know? Especially since,
as you noted, many attacks are brutal and
repeated, not to mention the ones where
people are devoured entirely.
I've never heard one of these 'experts' say
"Sharks are dangerous, ravenous
creatures whose cunning and capacity for
violence towards humans should never be
The 'expert' is always a bearded, bifocaled,
middle-aged, white, overweight
child-molester type who opines from the
comfort of his easy chair but wouldn't
be caught in the ocean to save his soul.
He ALWAYS gives the shark the benefit
of the doubt. (I think that must be the
requirement for becoming an 'expert')
Political correctness now governs even
what people will say about a gruesome,
even deadly shark attack. I haven't heard
anyone come to the defense of crocodiles
or vipers who kill hundreds of people
yearly, but maybe they're next.
