    hello
    it is very interesting and very scary going around your site, sometimes you wonder where is the safe place to have a nice and safe swim, my comment is that in some of the news on the fatal attacks they mention that a verdict was sentenced to exterminate the culprite shark and rarely we see fotos of the captured shark .
    i know that following any attack a slaughter starts and hundred of innocent sharks pay the price for a bite or even a fatal attack, so does it happen that the killer gets killed and where are the fotos then?? i read in one site that once a shark starts feeding on humans it becomes a habit and he is turned into an actual “man-eater” like lions, is it true
