First Fatality of WA Shark Cull

Word has just been received that the first fatality of State Premier Colin Barnett's shark cull is a 3 meter Tiger shark. The animal was baited on the drum lines, shot several times, and is being dragged out to sea. For those that do not know, tiger sharks are listed as Near Threatened on the IUCN Red List

Updates will be made when further information is gathered. Until then, send out some positive thoughts that this disgrace of a mitigation policy will not claim any more innocent victims during the Australian summer.
