As a parent I would be terrified to have my kids on that dock - they fall in they are chowed. Plus they are teaching those sharks to feed there - not a good idea in my opinion.

Now that is some window lickers right there, getting Bull sharks fired up like that with a bunch of kids standing 2 feet away.

If my kids where there and I walked up on that idiot... He would be taking a little nap on the dock.

Future Darwin Award Winner for sure -- after a shark jerks him off-balance and he falls in. In the meantime, just another douchebag.

Do y'all let your kids ride in cars or ride bikes?

What any douchebag wants to do on his own time and in his own spot is his prerogative. That being said, this guy is clearly in a public spot that other people are going to be using day in and day out. To make the waters around an open dock like that a feeding ground for bulls of that size is at the very least inconsiderate and dangerous for any kids that are in the area.

Maybe trying to overcompensate?

Uhhh, yes. But, I don't let them fool around with A) sculpins, B) stonefish, C) triggerfish, D) sharks. My son got to learn the triggerfish lesson by seeing a Mexican kid nearly get his finger bit off. Kid thought the trigger was dead and grabbed it to clean it and it chomped down on his finger and didn't let go. He just kept stabbing it with the knife over and over until it relaxed its grip; his finger was chomped to the bone.

AFD -- I get your point, but there's some things that fall into that "common sense" category. Deliberately encouraging and inciting sharks to feed at a public dock where lots of people are present is just plain stupid, in my opinion. Whole different story out at sea if you get one around the boat and toss 'em a fish to watch the show.

I am glad I wasn't off base with my response. I am a shark fisherman and have taken may 8 year old son out with me 40 miles off the beach. This situation in the video is clearly a recipe for disaster. Like you guys said the kids in the video are standing on the edge of the dock - it only takes someone to bump into you. The sharks are being trained to respond to splashes as a feeding indicator - bad news. My son fell off the dock at my marina while trying to net crabs (yes, he had his life jacket on). The shark may not "eat" the person but if a 7 foot shark does an exploratory bite on your thigh - your in a bad way in a hurry - God forbid it is a child. The unfortunate part is they will blame shark if it bites the guy who is trying to grab the dorsal fin.

.....the problem here is the innocent bystander who has never seen this video or knows anything about this, and jumps in to retrieve a lost knife, fish, clear a prop, etc. or just simply falls in, may be in serious trouble.......................may God forbid it be a child !!!!!!!!!!!.......small splash......shark food..........?????????

Pretty stupid IMHO. Like the rest have said, a kid falls in there or jumps in for whatever reason later that day or shortly after this and it will not turn out well. I know as a kid we did dumb stuff like that for whatever reason...usually to retrieve my dad's or grandpa's stuff that I shouldn't have had to begin with.

This is something you do offshore not around a dock.
