2013 Shark Attacks

Since I once lived in Hawaii, I can tell you that the media has hyped up shark attack frequency, even though these things happened before Global Warming, pollutants, and other alleged causes. Sharks eat any food they can catch, and often surfers are mistanken for delicious turtles. Shark attacks are also more frequent in dirty water and near places where rivers and streams empty into the ocean. These are also great places to surf, so you can do the math. Sharks are also somewhat migratory, so if you have the bad luck of being in the water when they are in the neighborhood, then there can be trouble. Additionally, Hawaii tourism has picked up recently, which means that there is just more food in the water to eat
