Great White Sharks are too often simply viewed as cold killers. I prefer to think of them as beautiful death. They are the ultimate apex predator in the ocean. They keep ecosystems balanced and the sea free of disease. So much more than mindless killing machines. They are beauty and strength.
Now these fools in Albany, Western Australia, caught this shark and had the opportunity to let it go. At 4.1 metres, 14 feet, it is still a juvenile. But they wanted the trophy and the news article. One less shark of an endangered species. Morons.
And here's some awesome footage of these multi-tonne creatures showing their incredible strength.
I could watch these all day.
