Study of sharks can be summed up in three words

In response to the proposed shark study (The Maui News, Aug. 21): Well, I’m just amazed that the state or county is going to spend hundreds of thousand of dollars for this study.

Well, I thought I’d write a short letter to save a lot money and time with three simple words: Too many turtles. Any local who grew up with the ocean knows tiger sharks love honu. With the honu population exploding, tigers get closer to shore. There, study done.

One last thing, my heart goes out to the family and friends who lost that young woman in that last shark attack, may she rest in peace.
