Culling is not a Solution

As long humans swim in proximity of meat-eating sharks, they put themselves at risk. Period.
If we're willing to take the risk, we must also be willing to accept the possible outcome. It's not a cold or unfeeling point of view. It's simply the raw truth.

I think about this each and every time I step into the surf.

Below is a link to a compelling editorial against culling Great White Sharks off Australia in the wake of another shark 'attack'. The author makes many valid arguments in opposition of a cull, none of which are new. But he does make an interesting point I hadn't considered before: other sharks would most certainly die in the pursuit of one. Sound familiar?
