Shark Week on the Discovery Channel. Jaws. Sharknado.
All perpetuate what is, actually, largely a myth that sharks commonly attack people.
And an attack at the Manhattan Beach Pier doesn’t help the sharks’ image. Maybe the fish should hire a PR firm to improve its reputation among swimmers and coast dwellers.
Or, we could just listen to the scientists, long distance swimmers and shark researchers who know them best. Because, in reality, we pose much more of a threat to the sharks than they do to us.
