I certainly cannot rejoice in the death of a person, but I can say with conviction 'Good for that shark!'. I am always for the animals, especially as in this situation.

No honor begets no honor and the law of cause and effect on top of it all..

Thanks Jill. I too beleive in Karma, but these were not men out shark finning either. Sure they were poachers of the Abalone, but consider how Desperate you must be to feed your family to take a chance like that. Cape Town, South Afrika is crawling with Great White Sharks !! Peace out.

Sending a Green Star is a simple way to say "Thank you"
You cannot currently send a star to Jill because you have done so within the last week

I guess I should say that I'm glad, but I'm not. This is sad indeed. There should be no poaching and no deaths. This is what happens when people are forced to the economic fringe and do dangerous jobs that threatens not only them, but nature in general.

Why on Earth would anyone take the chance to go in the water with Great White sharks? Thanks Jill.

Noted, Tks Jill....This is great news, poetic justice finally..
Greed will get you one way or the other, as they say what goes around

Ok they were in the home waters of the shark.
It is a loss for his family and friends. I can understand poor people taking a risk to earn money. I think the real fix for this problem is......

don't consume or buy endangered items. If there is no market there will be no reason to poach!

I agree with Deborah B. I also believe in what comes around goes around.

The story says:
"A friend of Mr Momoza, who witnessed the attack, said: "There was screaming and crying. We just swam, we didn't look back." So it was his turn for screaming and crying.
I don't feel one bit sorry. As I always say what comes around goes around. NO BIG LOST THERE.

People need money. Especially in Africa. Poverty is a hard thing to deal with so I can't say he had it coming to him. If he was poor and had a family to care for I could understand why he was poaching. Some of you say good for the shark, but I know what it is like to go hungry at night and it's not fun.
