Drone captures chilling moment Great White shark stalks swimmers at NSW beach

I love that there are sharks in the waters, it’s a good sign of an eco system beginning to recover…but the video that Sunrise put together for the story is disgusting!

I don’t understand why the media needs to constantly demonise these animals! Why the flashing red, why call it a scene “straight from a horror movie”, why the menacing tone? There’s no way those swimmers are in danger from the shark, it’s not “stalking” them, it’s trying to find fish amongst the breakers. If it wanted to eat the people, this video would not be safe to view!

The media just needs to stop the over dramatisation of these events. Embrace that our waters are starting to recover from over fishing, embrace the environmental aspect of this, and for crying out loud, let’s try to educate people!
