What's Behind This Summer's Shark Encounters?

Animals  (tags: shark, water, chumming )

Humans and great white sharks have experienced multiple close encounters this summer.Our presence in the water, shark migration patterns, and "chumming" (attracting sharks with bait) help to explain the incidents.

I was surprised that shark survived the landing on the boat and subsequent thrashing around...they were in a area where there are great whites and they were studying them, so I dont know if it was such a strange thing.,..maybe there are more people out there studying them and watching them than there used to be...
thanks Suzane for the interesting theory.
