For years, humans have thought of great white sharks wandering the sea at random, only occasionally venturing close to shore

Well they say sharks don't get cancerand they use shark fins to treat cancer. I wonder if Blue Cross and Blue Shield cover Shark Fin treatments. They sure make a fortune with radiation and chemo. I think we should leave the ecosystem alone. We've messed enough with it. Yes sharks do come close to the shore. I was in Montauk Long Island in 1997 and standing on the beach my friend and I looked past the green part where it turns blue, and we saw the fin sticking out of the water going back and forth and circling. I always used to swim out furthe than that. It was cold though, so we weren't in the water. However, a diver in a suit walked into the water before the appearance of the shark. He was a few feet away from us and just went right in. We never saw him come out. But he must have been OK because he would have called for help or washed ashore or we would have seen or heard an attack. It was pretty close. They come into 3 feet of water and also lakes. The ecosystem is so messed up. Let the sharks alone.
