SHARK IDEA FAILS TO DRUM UP INTEREST
PERMANENT dumb, sorry, drum lines in the Whitsundays in a bid to stop shark attacks?
Want to stop sharks biting us? Not playing in their backyards as if we owned them would be a good start.
It’s an idea that might be worth considering the next time we take a bite out of the next piece of flake we rip into when eating our fish and chips.
Now there’s an idea that might actually work. We could kill just about every shark in the sea simply by doing what we’re already doing: we could go on battering them to death.
Yes, it’s tragic that another human being has been killed by a shark, and joking about it isn’t appropriate. But filling the ocean with drum lines isn’t appropriate either.
Why can’t we just accept the fact that shark attacks will continue to occur as long as people continue to seek the enjoyment and the pleasure of the home they [sharks] live in?
And if we can’t do that, God help any creatures — be they sharks or anything else — that get in our way just by going about living in accordance with their own natures and in their own environments. Michael McCall Primrose Sands
