    What are you MAD MAN!!!!!???????


    It was terrorizing the waterpark!!!!!!!

    I saw a series of documentaries on just that sort of behavior back in the 70's.

    I just don't see why such an impressive creature should be killed for a competition, or for some fishermen to get one up on each other.

    things like this happen everyday. for big game, fish, crabs, and all sorts of crap like this.

    it sucks, but if there is people willing to play, there will always be the game.

    I think you're thinking of the dreaded jaguar shark..."I'm going to find it and I'm going to destroy it. Possibly with dynamite."

    "What would be the scientific purpose of killing it?"
    "Revenge."

    Wow, I'd love to hook into that! I went shark fishing a few weeks ago for Thresher but only caught some Dogfish Head sharks. Thresher's are tasty.

    that move was hysterical.

    and no. tiger sharks and great whites are hunters. they have no problem destroying a humans life.
     
  14. I really don't care either way...but with regards to certain activities having inherent risk:

    There was a clip on the local news of some lady that was stabbed by a swordfish as she reeled it close to the boat a few years ago. Slow motion replay actually showed the fish aiming for her. She lived, but was in the hospital for around a month (nearly died). I found it interesting....I'm sure some here would say she deserved it for fishing or something.

    Oaks Bluff is Martha's Vineyard, right? This and/or Nantucket is where the original Jaws was filmed. Cool.

    I'm a fisherman and I would definitely say she deserved it. These things are struggling for survival. That's why I beat large and dangerous fish senseless with a club before I pull them on board.

    Yes, it's MV. Jaws was filmed there.

    Also, I just noticed the spelling. Oak Bluffs.
