At least someone posts the attacks. You have sites like abacoforum who do not want to report any of the attacks as it will cancel reservations. Its all about the benjamins. I hope this victim has a full recovery.

I just posted over there. See how long before they delete. It is a shame that site is overly moderated. I guess it is all $$ related.

Gezz!

Nippers at nippers.

This continues and the Bahamas are gonna be hurting worse than they already are. It's seems almost daily there is some not so good news coming from over there. Sharks, crime, and ever increasing costs. When the crowds drop off the costs of everything will continue to go up as the infrastructure continues to crumble. Besides the cruise ships/casinos, their close proximity to Florida boaters is all they have going for themselves.

Is it just me or does the Bahamas news press have a hard on for the way things are being run over there.

Except the crowds arenít dropping off as the Abacos are busier than they have ever been. More people in the water = more shark attacks. Itís quite simple.

They claim to only delete threads on attacks not related to the Abacos. Let's see what happens.

Is there any theory for this other than a good economy? I thought when they jacked the prices last year things would slow down.

Todays electronics, cruise at 50 with a 400 mile range... puts a lot of stuff in reach that wasn't a decade ago.

As soon as idiots quit feeding sharks, sharks will quit feeding on idiots.




(I realize these two *may* not have been feeding the sharks but you can bet there is a shark dive outfit that anchors nearby.)

More people everywhere and a lot on boats feed sharks when they see them. Plus the shark feeding dives should never have been allowed anywhere in the world, which simply conditions the sharks to associate people with an easy meal.
