People are unbelievable.

There are so many great quotes in this article about some people who climbed onto the back of a dead whale to pet the great white sharks that were eating it…

  • “… said … he was shocked at the level of disrespect some people showed for their own safety…”
  • “… appalled by the bizarre behavior of walking across the back of dead whales or, for that matter, patting a great white shark while it is feeding…”
  • “… no restrictions apply to dead whales…”
  • “… government will need to look at changing the law in order to protect people too stupid to protect themselves…”
  • “… these creatures are not toys. In the case of the great white, they can be extremely dangerous…”
