Brave girl. I’m glad she has the same attitude as a lot of surfers in Australia. We understand that sharks are mostly harmless creatures and that’s a risk you take when entering the water. She was very lucky to escape with mostly superficial wounds, but articles like this do nothing to help the negative attitudes that people have against sharks. It sickens me to see people getting up in arms about “horrific shark attacks” and then having the attitude that they should be killed. If you’re afraid of sharks, don’t go in the water. This is their natural environment and have every right to be protected. You wouldn’t walk into a bear enclosure at the zoo and then get pissed if you got mauled.
