according to 60 minutes tonight

apparently according to the 60 minutes 23 year old shark expert she says tiger sharks are harmless and there are no recorded attacks by them , here to disagree , a pearl diver in broome 30 years ago was taken by a tiger shark, shot a 12foot tiger shark with a smokie about 27 years ago when it charged me at onslow all I can say is it was a very scary moment I was lucky I knew it was there rather than it just coming at me out or the blue

 what a coincidence, Sunday Night also had a shark expert doing a story tonite!


 Give a man a mask, and he'll show you his true face...



The older you get the more you realize that no one has a f++king clue what they're doing.

Everyone's just winging it.

Pretty harmless

I've had a few bigguns "charge" me. They usually turn off just before biting, I'm no expert, just have been lucky so far I guess. They seem to be quite placid

Way back when I seem to recall that a man was taken by a tiger shark at Cottesloe beach. The shark that they think took him was caught some time later and that shark is now mounted and housed in the Perth museum (I think)
