Shark attack victim is opposed to protect great white sharks
A man who was attacked by a great white shark ten years ago says he fears moves to protect the creatures will endanger lives. The Conservation Minister, Chris Carter, has released a discussion document canvassing options for protecting the great white shark. Vaughan Hill lost his right arm and has limited use of his left hand after being attacked by a great white in 1996.
Mr Hill believes the protection of the sharks in Australia has made beaches there less safe and he is worried the same will happen here. He says Mr Carter should be prepared to explain his decision to shark attack victims if the changes are brought in.
