Privileged?

GREAT conservation messaging!

Oh for crying out loud!
The 26-year-old from Burleigh Heads said she felt “privileged” to be attacked...
The activist, who has been on several free-diving expeditions in South Africa to protect great whites, said..
Right.
Looks like we got ourselves yet another one of those self promoting Shark chicks.
And after so many years, I'm STILL shocked at the abject drivel uttered by those eco-celebrities, or whatever. Mediation of extinction, pollution and cruelty to animals? Expert voice - as in, "according to the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, the great white shark is the most endangered"?

You don't fucking need to free dive with GWS in SA to protect them because a) it's a recipe for disaster and b) they are already protected both in SA and internationally! And do you really think that telling the whole fucking world (!) that you've been ATTACKED is a good strategy for changing the tired old narrative of the ever lurking beasts?

Anyway.
Like so many others, she's gonna come and go - and I may add, the sooner the better!
And I really, really got to stop paying attention!

Would love to know where/when she was free-diving with white sharks in South Africa (which requires special permits).

Have you ever seen a wound so clean and surrounding tissue so perfect with staples still in it?

Where's the record of the attack?

*She apparently claimed last year she was dating Justin Bieber too...


*allegedly... Not seen the claims myself.

Everything about this is cringe-worthy, especially her SS "glamor photo."

David,

Bieber (and alot of very strange claims) here.

But now some folks are making some really interesting reflections about that attack and especially, the wound - read the next post.

Looong (!) story short, it's all quickly becoming increasingly fishy and increasingly pathetic.
