Sharks in the news

Let’s compare stories.

First we have this story.

Then we have this one.

The bottom one lacks the hyperbole or affectation that other news outlets have chosen. Simply understanding shark behavior and calmly assessing the risks of shark presence at beaches seems the best course. Heck, even Peter Benchley regrets the hysteria his work, Jaws, caused and spent much of his latter life working toward shark conservation.
