2 Whales tangled in Shark Nets

2 Whales tangled in Shark nets off Gold Coast this week 1 baby dies

Baby humpback whale dies today, July 23rd, due to shark nets Gold Coast Lifeguard superintendent Peter Miller said lifeguards responded to the initial call. “We were called to a possible whale stranding in the net off Currumbin,” he said. Fu…ing shark nets!!!! another young whale was tangled in a sharknet last saturday. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3167629/Caught-napping-Whales-face-new-deadly-threat-shark-nets-tangled-nod-swimming-long-winter-migration.html Some of the net got cut off and now it has a permanent heavy necklace. How many more whales are going to die before they are removed. Shark nets must go. They are simply used as a means to blindly fool the public into a false sense of security- they create more of a hazard than they do to keep people safe. It’s time people see the real destruction they cause. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-07-23/beached-whale-calf-at-palm-beach-on-the-gold-coast-dies/6643076 There were 12 more dolphins caught and mostly killed just last year (2014) in Queensland alone!

Mick said he was not going to go easy. deeeeeep breath everyone. Everyone ok. no blood. wooow crazy stuff. Happy to see no surfers or organisers are calling for a shark cull or nets. They acknowledged we are in their world and we do so at our risk. Had Mick been like some of the surfers in WA who were promoting culls and drum lines i dont know
