White Pointers are not PC

#1
Swimming with dolfins is one thing. Swimming with White Pointer sharks!

The Melbourne Age 17 Dec:
The father of a surfer killed by a great white shark off an Adelaide beach does not want it destroyed, saying the ocean is the animal's domain.

As authorities ordered the 5m long shark to be found and destroyed, Philip Peterson, the father of 18-year-old victim Nick Peterson, said his son admired and respected sharks.

Nick Peterson was killed instantly when he was attacked by the shark as he was towed behind a boat on a surfboard just 300 metres off Adelaide's popular metropolitan West Beach yesterday.

"It came up from nowhere - he didn't see it for a second before it happened,'' Adam Floreani, one of three 16-year-old friends in the boat who watched the horrific attack, told Channel Seven.

The friends said Mr Peterson had fought for his life, hitting the shark as it took him away.

"He went down fighting - he didn't give up,'' said Mr Floreani.

Police initially believed they had found some of Mr Peterson's remains today but tests later showed they were not human tissue.
The latest news report says the lad was taken by the shark which was soon joined by a second one and in seconds he was torn apart. I remember there were two surfers taken by White Pointers in the same area last summer.

Also a report last week from Queensland where a youth ignored signs and went down to paddle about on a river. At the waters edge he stopped and lent forward and a 6 meter croc lept out and grabbed him by the head. The lad wriggled out but his whole face was opened up.

Still if you are afraid of being bitten or eaten by something then this might not be the destination of emigration for you.

Some cnut had these things protected FFS !
Had he never seen the maw these buggers have ?
What sort of protection do they need ?

Horrible creatures, the only thing their sort understand is a good extermination !


But sympathies with the poor sod taken, it's a hell of a way to go to heaven.

Through the hoop of a fish !

Sorry about the spelling. It's been a long day.

Still off to the beach for a swim.

A little Birdie tip for you when swimming in the sea in Oz. Always make sure there are others swimming further out than you.

Hang on a sec, chaps! I believe that persons various believe that 'dolphins are fish'. This lack of knowledge is disturbing, to say the least.

For all you could ever want (or need) to know about our swimming mammalian chums, go here:

Honestly, whatever next? :)

I'm with cuts. It lives in the sea, has fins, smells like fish, tastes like fish and talks fish (except flipper - he was special). It's a fish. And if their so clever, how come they get caught in tuna nets or live in tiny aquariums.

Stupid fish case closed. Whales are gert big stupid fish, no matter what anyone tries to tell you.

All due sympathy for the fish-food kid, but it would be a dull(er) world without big, nasty, dangerous animals.
Personally, I would like to see bears and wolves re-introduced into this country, and while we're at it, how about a few venomous snakes and spiders. Its not as though we humans, as a species, would suffer from a little "thinning out". Predation is a good thing, and outdoor pursuits would be much more challenging if there was the prospect of wrestling a bear in The Storey Arms carpark.
No smileys, I'm serious! (Oh ok :wink: )

Better yet, let's introduce them in the inner city areas, where we'd get the best results from the thinning out process: bunny-hugging, Grauniad-reading, 'we know best' types and chavs.

It's got my vote !

As I understand it, you can go and 'wrestle a bear' nightly at Gobbler's Gulch on Hampstead Heath, though it's likely to leave you with a sore ring and/or a nasty taste in your mouth. :D

I thought the politically correct euphemism was 'badger watching' ?

Now I'm just getting confused. Well up for badger baiting or beaver munching though! :D

Perhaps Ozgerbobble can help us with that one?
