People are being eaten again
« on: March 21, 2015, 12:41:07 AM »
  Here in Hawaii.  Not cannibalism, tiger sharks.
 At apopular beach near my place a doctor was swimming in shallow water when he was hit by a tiger shark.
 He fought it off and got ashore but was taken to a hospital on Oahu.  The beach was closed to swimmers until
 Park authorities decide the tiger has moved on.

The guy was from Kansas no less. I bet noodling for catfish here will seem pretty tame now.

We have something like ten billion of us. Any other species we'd have opened up a hunting season, hired government trappers and probably sprayed to "control the herd".   ::)

 And used a special four pronged square fork when eating it.
  Now they eat spam.  Sharks haven't discovered spam yet.

Most of the attacks out here are by Tiger sharks.  No wholesale killing off of sharks here.  For some Hawaiians, it can be their family amakua (god).  Mine is the pueo and mo'o. (owl & gecko)  The VA doctor from Overland, KS got a warning. 
From the Deep Deep South out in left field.  There are no stupid questions.  There are however stupid people asking questions.  🤣, this includes me.  😉

Play in their backyard, don't complain if you come up a bit short!  At least I can go to my grave knowing that if a shark eats me, he/she will have a full meal! :D

  Those big sun fish eat jelly fish.  Because of that their flesh is not edible.  I don't think even other fish eat them.
 They just drift around barely faster than a jelly fish.

 Okay, I googled them and there are some things that eat them, like sea lions.

Last July a group of swimmers did an online "meetup" for an open water swim as they neared a pier their paths crossed with a hooked great white which then attacked a 40yo male. There is video from the "fishermen's" perspective.

I start open water swimming next month.

I don't know of anybody who's ever been attacked by one. in your case they'd probably make an exception river boy.
