Irish Times commentary on recent Red Sea shark attacks

The Irish Times recently published an article titled, “Why sharks are guilty until proven innocent,” which addresses some of the measures of response taken after the recent shark attacks at Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt.

The article touches on the topics of killing sharks as a response to shark attacks and using captured sharks as scapegoats to preserve the image of resort areas to maintain tourism. The article also mentions how feeding and chumming sharks has been the target of blame for some shark attacks including an attack last June on a snorkeler off Saint John’s reef in the Red Sea.

To read the article in its entirety, head on over to the Irish Times.
