Following Attacks, Officials in Western Australia Will Now Shoot Great White Sharks on Sight
Posted by Derek_Mead on Friday, Sep 28, 2012

Through some physics wizardry, great white sharks can hide in plain water. It’s a great skill for hunting, but in West Australia, it’s also now a tool for survival after an Australian premier announced plans to shoot all great whites near beaches on sight.

Spurred by a spate of five fatal attacks on swimmers in the last 10 months, the Australian government announced a $6.85 million dedicated for “shark mitigation strategies” on the continent’s west coast.

The program includes a major change to Australia’s shark mitigation laws. Previously, only sharks that had attacked swimmers could be killed. The new program allows them to be killed on sight, and includes $2 million to the Department of Fisheries for tracking and killing sharks that meander near beaches.

After saying that the new laws won’t incite a shark hunt, Western Australia Premier Colin Barnett infuriated conservationists by dismissing great whites. “We will always put the lives and safety of beachgoers ahead of the shark,” he told a radio station. “This is, after all, a fish – let’s keep it in perspective.”

Great whites, one of the most iconic predators of the world’s oceans, are just a fish? Yeah, conservationists are pissed.
From NBC News:

I'd love to take an RPG out on a boat and blow up great whites with rocket grenades. Fuckers are so smug , think they are at the top of the food chain. An RPG will show them!

Nothing wrong with thinning the herd of dangerous sharks. Usless eaters. Use the meat for pet food or something constructive.

Same thing goes for crocs...have one stuffed for viewing in every museum and eliminate the rest. It's difficult enough for their prey species to survive these days, the coldblooded preditors aren't needed anymore.

IMHO.

TY for the pinhf A plan to protect West Australian beachgoers by killing great white sharks that come too close has angered animal welfare advocates and conservationists.

Many were also affronted by Premier Colin Barnett's dismissal of the animals as just "fish".

The government on Thursday announced a $6.85 million package of "shark mitigation" strategies in response to five fatal attacks in the state's waters within 10 months.

It has allocated $2 million for a new Department of Fisheries service to track, catch and destroy sharks found in close proximity to swimmers.

The government has also redefined the circumstances in which an order may be given to kill sharks that pose an imminent threat to humans.

"Previously the orders were used in response to an attack, but now proactive action will be taken if a large white shark presents imminent threat to people," Fisheries Minister Norman Moore said.

If people don't wanna get bit, stay out of the fucking water! It's the goddamn shark's goddamn home, not ours, get it? They don't give 2 shakes about us and now they have no clue what murderous hornets nest they have stirred up. Neither will they understand why they are being butchered! We, on the other hand, DO understand why they are biting us!

So what are you waiting for. All the people who hate humans should be the first to volunteer to leave.

Or, you could go swim out and commune with your loveable great white sharks. See how much they care about you.

You shouldn't judge all sharks just because a few are bad. There are good and bad in every group. If you see a shark swimming up to you you should judge it as an individual not a species. Or are you anti-shark?

EVERYTHING was put on this earth for a reason.........including the Great White Shark. They are part of the circle of life and deserve our protection as much as the Polar Bear, Lion, Tiger, etc.. The Great White is also on the Endangered Species list so I find it despicable that the Australian Government is allowing this massacre. Like a poster said before.....THE OCEAN IS THEIR HOME!!!!

I have the answer to your question. Sharks lack kidney and excrete urea thru their skin. That's why shark meat smells and tastes like ammonia. To fix this you cut the meat into steaks and marinade 12-24 hrs in a mixture of lemon juice or vinegar with water(about a tablespoon per quart) which neutralizes the urea and makes it totally edible. British fish and chips is actually shark! Bonus-no bones!
