Welcome to Shark Attacks

We are trying to bring a common sense look at Shark Attacks for those ordinary people that use or plan to use the oceans for recreational activities or harvesting resources.

The Non-Unprovoked Shark Attacks are the attacks for some reason did not meet one or several of the long list of guidelines a ten-member board of Elasmobranch researchers and stakeholders devised.   The Non-Unprovoked shark attack status is the easiest to obtain because your . There are just so many guidelines to prevent you from obtaining an Unprovoked Shark Attack.

Stakeholders, shark researchers, the media, government officials, tourism officials, user groups, social media, shark conservation movements all love the Non-Unprovoked shark attacks. They don’t get a dot (.) on the map and the attack pretty much goes away. I have listed some of the attacks that are Non-Unprovoked because of guidelines a ten-member board of Elasmobranch researchers and stakeholders devised.

02/11/2009 Navy Diver Paul Degelder ( Australia )

A Navy Diver attacked while on duty. Everything was documented he nor anyone else did anything to provoke the attack. The Australian Shark Attack File has him listed as an Unprovoked shark attack. He Lost an Arm and Leg.

 

 

Checking the information from the International Guidelines

We set everything the same as we did from the Australian Shark Attack File.

The year 2008 – 2009.

The Shark Species – Bull

Location – Woolloomooloo in Sydney Harbour

According to the International Guidelines, there is no Unprovoked Shark Attack by a Bull shark anywhere in SE Australia in 2008 – 2009.

Under International Guidelines no shark attacks on military personnel that occurred while on duty can be Investigated.

If Military personnel were investigated there would thousands upon ten thousands more shark attacks of the nastiest type imaginal and they have to be added.

Paul at least your countries shark attack file investigated and included you as an Unprovoked Shark Attack. Sorry your considered a Non-Unprovked Internationaly.

 

Rodney Fox 1963

Everyone had seen the picture of Rodney Fox after his attack.

 

 

Under International Guidelines harvesting or collecting resources from the sea makes Rodneys shark attack a Non-Unprovoked Shark Attack.

 

 

Unprovoked Shark Attack.

Jana is Confirmed to be an Unprovoked Shark Attack I am only using her because in 2013 Hawaii has two fatalities. 

08/14/2013 – Jana Litteropp – Hawaii *** Fatal ***

In 2013 Hawaii had 2 shark attack deaths but the map only displays one shark attack fatality

 

 

12/02/2013 – Patrick Briney – Hawaii – *** Fatal ***

 

Patrick Briney did something any of us might do. Rents a Kayak puts a fishing rod in it and paddles around a little. Stops to take a rest and may or may not have put a small lure in the water to catch baitfish. Shark grabs his leg and kills him right there.  

 

Non-Unprovoked Shark Attack

The report says he might have been fishing for tiny little baitfish.

He was in a kayak, a kayak is considered a vessel

Under International, Guidelines who knows if the shark was attacking the vessel or the human. The shark attack is a Non-Unprovoked Shark Attack.

09/12/2009 Richard A. Snead (North Carolina) ***Fatal***

As you read Richards page you will see all the things that took place to protect the stakeholders in North Carolina.

 

The medical examiner found tissue at bite locations that confirmed his heart was beating when he was attacked.

The new guideline to keep this a Non-unprovoked shark attack was when the shark grabbed Richard it pulled him to the bottom and he drowned.

Guidelines Violated: Stakeholders did not want a Confirmed to be unprovoked shark attack in North Carolina and made it go away by calling it an accidental Drownding.
