Bad idea- save the sharks

I am really not sure what to think about this. I have to wonder if there might be another solution, such as some kind of warning system for swimmers when there are sharks approaching. Killing a lot of sharks has to have some kind of affect on the ecosystem and it might not be a good one.

Terrible idea, killing something that is in its own environment, humans are slowly learning from their former colonial powers how to destroy things they do not own. This is terrible.
