    Let nature run its course and live your life. There are risks in everything that we do on a regular basis. It's a miracle that we survive each and every single day. You never know when it's going to be your turn.

    If we're going to cull anything, it should be the Megalodon. I would hate to run into one of those behemoths. Did anyone catch that special on Monday? I thought I saw a Megalodon fin the other day, but it ended up being a sailboat. Keep your feet up!

    What is the exact process of seal culling anyway? Can you really look a seal pup in the eye and then pull the trigger?

    I agree with most of what you say...

    But GW's WILL be a major issue in Mass very soon... In other places (S.A., Norcal, Australia) sharks hunt in deep water. They wait for the seals to swim out in to the deep and attack. That is not the case here, because the water is shallow. As the population increases there will be more encounters. It may be "mistaken identity" but it can still cost you a limb.

The seal population is crazy so let the GW's prey on them. It might be 5, 10, 20 years from now, but eventually the seals will move and the sharks will follow them. Killing them is very short-sighted...take a longer term view of the issue and you might find that killing 20 sharks does nothing.

    Not for nothing, but are GW's even a legit concern on the east coast? I believe NorCal has an issue, but east-coasters should be more concerned with Bulls. I'm not worried about one GW attack, especially when said attack involved someone swimming over 100 yards off shore. That's just ignorant.

    Come on guys, live and let live. Let's all hold hands and sing kumbaya together.

    We do kill off the human population (in some states). When someone is a murder they get death penalty or at least prison.

So by others logic, we should just start killing off the human population, since they are obviously the most aggressive species toward humans. Pretty sad that our own kind is more of a threat than any other animal ever created.

    ^^amen

    Haha, some of you folks disagree with SharkHunter. Did you ever bother to consider his name? Just sayin...dude is all about huntin some sharks

    Seal hunting? Hmm, perhaps we can treat them like we treat cows. Do they emit methane as well? Just imagine a seal burger? Probably make a good winter wetsuit as well. Its the real deal! Perhaps a seal hood would be pretty badazz like the lion and tiger ones the tribal dudes rock. Would make a nice Halloween costume.

    They usually sit in prison for years and years while we pay for them to keep em alive, but yeah I see your point, it's not enough though apparently, because people are killing other people in record numbers, maybe when you take a murderer out they multiply?

    statistically you are wrong. since WW2, according to statistics and many researchers, we live in the most peaceful time in human history. it's media sensationalism leads people to believe otherwise.

    I think if you don't want to surf with sharks, go to Typhoon Lagoon and stay out of the ocean entirely. What's next, the jellyfish? How bout getting rid of all that itchy seaweed too. Sac up and paddle out, and thank goodness for what you about to receive. If you get bit the shark will probably spit you out, then you can go show off your scar at dockside bars and pick up sea wenches. There is always a silver lining in my book. Think of all the cool attachable accessories you could plug into a hi tech hook. Cull the morons. Leave the sharks alone!

    Thanks for the update, but there have been 3 murders within 1 mile of my home in the last month, is that media or reality?
