    Bradley Adrian Smith, 29, died Saturday afternoon after being savaged in the Indian Ocean off Left Handers Beach, south of Western Australia state capital, Perth. Witnesses said Smith tried to fight off at least one and possibly two sharks, which officials said most likely were great whites, although they said they could also have been bronze whaler sharks.

    Authorities Monday continued to hunt for the killer shark and said they would likely shoot it if they can conclusively prove they have found the animal responsible for Smith’s death.

    But the shark also found an unlikely ally — with the dead surfer’s brother saying the animal should not be killed.

    “I don’t believe that the shark should be killed just for the sake of what’s happened in this situation,” Stephen Smith told reporters on Sunday. “I don’t believe that Brad can be revenged by killing a shark.”


I guess the guy has a point, but I'll be honest; if a Great White shark ate my brother, I'd be out there with Quint, Hooper, and Brody trying to kill the damn thing myself.

If CINO killed my brother...well I wouldn't touch Halle Berry. But I would smack around the people that made it and allowed it to happen.

Because it's obvious that the shark(s) attacked the guy out of spite.

If you swim in waters that are known to contain sharks, you take the chance of being attacked by a shark. Sharks do not discriminate--they eat what looks like food. Humans look and taste suspiciously like food to a great white shark.

It's like when a cat gets into a dog's yard and the dog mangles the cat. No SPCA or law enforcement agency will do squat about it: the dog just did what dogs do when a cat comes around.

In this case, substitute person for cat and shark for dog and you've got the same thing. Don't want to get attacked by a shark? Avoid swimming where sharks have been spotted. It's that easy.

How are they planning on proving it was the shark that attacked him, anyways? Does it have a distinguishing scar, or possibly a tatoo?

Note that it says 'the authorities' are hunting for the shark. In all probability, they are trying to head off lawsuits from future shark attack victims, not get pointless revenge on a dumb animal.

Can't you just see that? "You're not doing anything to safeguard swimmers at that beach--you didn't even hunt down the shark that killed that guy, and are therefore liable for my client's injury." Common sense, like "don't go swimming in shark-infested waters unless you are aware of the risks involved" will never enter into it.

Then the baby seal's brother gets back at you. Pretty soon we're into full-scale Seals vs. EkeDolphins gang warfare. Stop the Insanity! (Besides, none of you are well suited to sporting gang colour bandanas.)

No offense, but what kind of pussy gets killed by a baby seal? ;)

Hahahaha... Emma and Hogan, you guys crack me the hell up.

And I have to tell you that ekedolphins do have gang colors-- blue and cyan. We knot the bandanas around our bottle noses.

And just because you get killed by a baby seal doesn't mean you're a wussy... it just means that's one bad-ass seal, that's all.

But the moment the dog would attack (and maim) a human the people go nuts and the dog will be put to sleep..

Just pointing out a counter point. I do agree with you here.
Too bad, shit happens. However..usually you hear about sharks taking a bite, letting you go and the victim just bleeds to death. I've watched Discovery a lot and hardly do they mention someone getting ripped up by two sharks
As for hunting the shark (or any creature that attacked a human)
I never quite understood what you sometimes hear:
Once an animal has tasted human blood they will come back for more..
WTF? Are what that damn delicious?! :)

But doesn't having a bandanna tied around your bottle nose make it hard to type with it?
