Hello again everyone.
This year Great White sharks have returned to the shores of the Cape Cod area and boaters and beachgoers have been worried. Me too.
This is a topic I think everyone is worried about (even my good friend, Jamboree, who celebrated her birthday over this past weekend).
In my case, I think the chances of being killed by a shark are nearly zero because I’m rarely, if ever, in the ocean. I’m not aware of any fresh water sharks. If there are any, then I guess my chances are higher. But again, I spend very little time in water, other than in my shower. Not aware of anyone being killed by a shark in a shower. If you have heard of this, please advise.
Researchers say people shouldn’t be too afraid of being killed by a shark. There were only 53 unprovoked shark attacks in the US in 2016, and none of them were fatal.
Since they used the word “unprovoked” I am wondering how many people were killed in “provoked” attacks. And I’m also wondering why anyone would provoke a shark. Seems kinda stupid to me.
Thanks for reading and stay tuned.
