"Negative Encounters"

I guess losing a limb will be far less  traumatic if it is just a "negative encounter" rather than an attack.

had a white swimming around the boat for the first time on saturday out the back of rotto. after seeing one of these up close, i agree, any encounter would result in the same outcome... scary beasts.

 will not be acceptable.

The GW will be required to attend counselling sessions and listen to a victem impact statement, before entering in to a good behaviour bond.

Repaeat offences may require more stringent therapy AND result in being barred from that section of the ocean...........
