During the years from 1980 to 2013 there have been 47 people killed by snakes..
During the average month in 2011, there was 107 people killed on Australian roads ..
I'm putting these numbers up because the West Australian Gumbyment have decided that sharks are so dangerous that anything over 3 metres long seen swimming (because, you know, sharks don't walk up on land and attack us) in any one of 5 Perth areas will be killed.
Most often people attacked and killed by sharks are surfers and divers, all of whom know the risks associated in playing in a sharks kitchen.
As horrible as it sounds to be eaten by an animal, we are at a far greater risk of death by car.. which generally means death by stupid.
Very few car accidents are totally unavoidable yet a 100 or more every month are killed on our roads and we seem immune to it.. 20 shark attacks in a state over 100 years and it's panic stations.
Want to avoid being eaten by a shark?
Pretty simple really, carry on as you do, the chances of even seeing a shark, let alone being attacked by one is incredibly small, put it this way, more West Aussies have won the lottery than have been attacked by a shark.
The chances of being killed driving to the beach is far higher than a shark attack..
If it still scares the shit out of you, swim in a pool.
Culling a creature (that Humans already kill 100 million a year of for a bowl of soup) is not the answer..
WA Government, you got it wrong... again
Don't kill the shark, or the snake, or even the car... educate.
