Sharks Just Like Sea-rial Killers(?)

Leave it to the U.K's SUN to over hype the shark.

Next to eye catching headlines like "Grandma Explodes on Loo" and "UFO Crop Circles Invade Wembly" you really do not get any good shark reporting from this Fox NewsCorp media train wreck.

Case in point and ripped from today's headlines:

Researchers used methods copied from criminology to show that great whites pick their targets in a highly focused fashion.

Prolific killers such as the infamous 19th century beast who stalked London's East End and Peter Sutcliffe, the "Yorkshire Ripper", behave in much the same way.

Editors Note: Anyone wonder why close to 100 million sharks are finned each year and no one seems to care?
