North American Shark Attacks Hit Decade High
Date:2/18/2013

harks are most common, and where danger is at its highest," Burgess said. "A perfect example of that is in Western Australia, where people have been getting hit in areas of known white shark abundance at times of year when white shark numbers are at their highest; the responsibility is upon us, as humans, to avoid such situations or else pay the consequence."

Surfers suffered from the most attacks -- 60 percent of them. Swimmers (22 percent) and divers (8 percent) were also attacked.

Overall, "shark attacks are rare and it doesn't matter whether you call them attacks or bites or bumps -- your chances of having any of them are slim," Burgess said.
