    I don't see any point in retaliation against animals. I have no problem with killing any animal that attacks you, menaces you, or even gets in your way-- but going out to hunt down one specific animal for something it may have done is just stupid.

    Yes but we need to be killing the nation's #1 threat, cocaine snorting bears:

    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    No, definitely not. The shark is only doing what it's programmed to do, and it's not like killing that shark is going to prevent other sharks from attacking people.

    Re: Should killer sharks be killed.

    I don't go lookin' for sharks to kill. I have so much time allowed to me on the water so I spend it more wisely. I look at sharks more of a pest, like a jellyfish, 'cuda, stingray, and an assortment of other spiny creatures of the deep. Since we can only keep one shark per boat, I usually just chum the water with the others I have the misfortune to hook into.

    I can be catching fish right and left and all of a sudden it suddenly stops. Next thing you know. ZZZZzzzzzzzzz... the drag is SCREAMING! Another godamn shark. A 4 foot shark fights like a 10 foot chainsaw. It will whup yo' butt! The few I am actually sucessful landing, well, sucks to be them.

    I am the top preditor on the water. (Operative word "On.") Believe that. If there comes a day I am not, then, perhaps I will be shark food. I know that going into the game.

    For every human killed by a shark 20 million sharks are killed by humans. I'm hardly a treehugger or anything but the waste annoys me, finning should be outlawed.

    Was the killer shark sunni or shia?

    Depends on species and aggresive nature of the specific animal. If it's an isolated case, probably not so much. If it's endangerd, it gets more consideration to letting it live. However, if it's been attcking multiple people; then by all means kill it.

    I actually agree with this. It's one thing to catch a shark for its meat and sell it at market. It's another to catch as many sharks as possible, cut the fins off, and then throw the carcass back into the water. A shark is just an animal, but still we shouldn't be so callous towards random sharks and we should be mindful of the effects our fishing practices have on the population.
