    Weirdist logic I’ve heard since Shabir Shaik was paroled because he is terminally ill! West Australia, which has never had any shark cage diving operations, has four fatal shark attacks since September, so they ban cage diving.

    That’s like banning Hippo safaris on the Durban beachfront because Hippos kill more people in Africa than any other animal. WTF Ozzies?

    @ Kahuna – but Southern OZ has had plenty of attacks, where there is cage diving. And what are they finding out with all these shark they’re tagging? That they like to travel. Put 2 + 2 together.
    I think SA could take a note from the Ozzies for once.
