I agree that the public should be notified in the case of a confirmed shark bite, but not to the point of creating mass hysteria. It is also important to remember that we are the interlopers into the shark's environment, not they into ours. I am surprised that we don't have more occurrences of fish/shark bites than we do, considering the number of people that swim in the ocean along the North Carolina coast.
As a mom, I sympathize with the parents and hope that their daughter has a speedy recovery.
