Come on

Quit trying to make news out of nothing. How often do you report on someone being stung by jellyfish or attacked by a neighbors dog?! I am sure that happens more often than shark attacks. This sort of thing happens every once and a while, add hundreds of people at the beach. Make that thousands, yeah one person may get bit by a shark, stung by a jelly, barbed by a stingray. It happens we invade the environment they live in. News would be if someone died from it, not an ankle bite from a probably juvenile shark pup that will send stupid ignorants fishing and killing random sharks in an attempt to feel better about themselves by saving the public from menacing evil human eaters that are shark. This is not news worthy...

Frankly

Frankly, I would rather read about a jellyfish than a Frog (enough already!).

SHARK BITE GUEST 69.

MAYBE YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE PERSON BITTEN. LOTS OF THINGS HAPPEN ALL THE TIME THAT ARE'NT REPORTED. THEN THERE ARE SOME, LIKE FROG, CASEY ANTHONY AND JENELLE THAT NEED TO BE PUT TO BED.
