  • Pros And Cons Of Culling Sharks

    The Western Australian government policy of culling sharks to ensure greater public safety, has caused nationwide debate, which is reflected in media texts through different views on the controversial measure.

Likewise, Horacek’s cartoon which may be aimed at those sympathetic for sharks, illustrates a similar view point to Ritchie, in that the cull is unjustified and politically motivated. On the contrary, the editorial (Australian 29/1/14) in addressing the issue to readers or activists opposed to the cull, argues in support of the government’s actions.

    Shark culling is a state government implemented policy in which sharks within the vicinity of a beach can be legally killed through shark nets or drumlines or a combination of the two. Drumlines are unmanned buoyant drums anchored one kilometre of a beach's shoreline. In between the drums are ropes with hooks.

Shark populations are “far below what they were decades ago” (Michael Heithaus, Threats to Sharks Threaten Entire Ecosystems). This decline of sharks is due to poor fishing practices, and largely due to a government…

Each winter, thousands of elk fled the park to be shot by hunters at the boundary at a place known by 1910 as the…
