They just need to put up a sign sharks in area and make the beach goers accountable. Do not kill the sharks. It is their habitat.

Not at all a 'proud aussie' on this score! But don't single out WA...similar programs have been run in NSW & QLD for decades now. We should be haranguing all 3 states to end this brutality!
