Jimmy - get well soon!

Thank you George for posting the following video.
It really says it all: it was an accident - and if one has thousands of close interactions with predatory Sharks, those things will just happen. Just ask any reputable Shark researcher! :)
Not to worry!

Kudos to Jimmy (Abernethy, with an "e"!) and to WPTV for having managed to turn this into what is essentially very much a pro-Shark story!

So from all of us here in Fiji, here's to Jimmy's full and speedy recovery - Jimmy, may you be back with your beloved animals real soon!

I join you wishing Jim all the best! From what we heard this was indeed a minor incident, probably not even a "real" bite, rather a superficial scratch which given the sharp teeth usually requires a few stitches. Too bad, but not surprisingly, this little accident made some news. Had a dog bitten Jim badly, even mauled him seriously, it would have gone unnoticed.

Get well soon Jim... the sharks need you to protect them.

Well said Wolfie.. had it been another animal, we would not have heard about it.
