Man in his 20s is attacked by a shark at a popular surfing spot
Not so lucky Phil.
Whoah..this chick is crazy.
Up to this sentence It was an informative article.....Naturally, this has been the subject of yet more great white research papers by the CSIRO, which predictably downplay the dangers great whites pose to us.It's another theory to explain the attacks, is all. Didn't comment and am not saying I put credence in it. The link between the CSIRO and cage diving operations is interesting.
You must also concede that "between 3K and 13K" is a vague enough estimate as to be almost useless.
Jaws IV?Maine woman killed in an apparent shark attack, the first unprovoked attack in the state
A Maine woman was killed Monday in what officials believe to be a shark attack off the coast.
According to the Maine Department of Marine Resources, the woman was spotted swimming off the shore of Bailey Island by a witness, who then saw the woman sustain an injury from a shark attack.
The woman, whose identity remains unknown pending notification of her family, was rescued by two kayakers who took her to shore. First responders later arrived to the scene and pronounced her dead moments later, per a statement.
"Until further notice, swimmers and boaters are urged to use caution near Bailey Island and to avoid swimming near schooling fish or seals," wrote the Maine Department of Marine Resources in the statement, which was posted on Facebook late Monday evening.
Experts say unprovoked shark attacks are incredibly rare. James Sulikowski, a professor at Arizona State University who studies sharks, told the Portland Press Herald that this is the first-ever unprovoked shark attack in the state.
Due to the prevalence of seals — a shark delicacy — in the area, Sulikowski also emphasized the importance of not swimming near the marine mammal.
“We can easily be mistaken for a seal … as a shark’s dinner,” he told the Portland Press Herald.
