In response to several recent shark attacks, the Western Australia government implemented a shark culling program.
The government decided shark culling is the right course of action to prevent future attacks. Shark culling, which targets tiger, bull, and great white sharks, is very controversial. Great whites are protected under Australian law.
Since implementing the controversial policy, they have caught 172 sharks. Most of those sharks were tiger sharks, and not a single great white was caught.
What do you think? Is shark culling an effective means of protecting swimmers at the beach?
