Shark Culls and Twitter Gold

I was lying in bed watching tv when I sent this tweet. Apparently some people thought it was funny. Amazing the things the Internet decides go viral.

Australia and Hawaii are both considering shark culls after a string of grisly shark bites. Humans have extreme reactions to shark bites, and I was pointing out some things that are more likely to happen than being killed by a shark. It is tragic when a person dies from a shark bite, but this is thankfully extremely rare.
A group of shark bite victims calling themselves Shark Attack Survivors for Shark Conservation have been advocating for shark protections for several years now and I think they are the best people to address issues like this. They were profiled on Facebook Stories a few months ago and recommend you read about them before making up your mind on shark culls.
