10 odd ways we protect endangered species: Tagging
Linda Staverees/Wildlife Conservation Society
15 terrifying minutes - terrifying for whom? for the humans or for the poor shark? I vote for the shark, there is a reason why most animals, including snakes, avoid humans as much as possible. 471 humans killed by sharks from 1580 till 2011, 100 million sharks getting killed by humans every year and sharks are the 'bad' ones. Always.
Some other more humane means of momentary captivity for tagging purposes needs to be devised. We should NOT be causing undue stress. Would you like to be HOOKED? Would you like to be pumped full of DRUGS created by another species? Treat it gently or not at all. Keep in mind that fear causes aggression.
