Six sharks were killed near Whitsunday island. These sharks were killed since in a span of 24 hours two people were seriously injured. The people attacked were a 46 year old women and a 12 year old girl. The attacks occurred in Cid harbour. Three drum lines were deployed on Friday and on Monday six sharks were caught. One of them was a 12 foot tiger shark. So far in 2018 there have been 2 shark attacks that ended in death and 33 shark attacks in Australia. People are saying that the waters are dangerous to swim in and to be cautious.
My opinion on this issue is that six sharks being killed is sad, but I think the safety of humans is more important. I think that people should listen if people tell them the waters are dangerous though. I also think that if there is a lot of shark activity in certain areas people should stay out of the water. .I hope that the people who got bit get better soon. I also hope that no more sharks need to be killed and that no one else gets bit.
