    :( I just think it's horrible how the media is jumping all over this. The family really just needs to be left to grieve.

    Why hasn't youtube removed this yet? It's too graphic.

    That is appalling and inappropriate.

    I really don't think this needs to be shown to the public.

    Poor jogger, but you can't blame the shark, human destruction of it's natural habitat, it's obviously map nourished and attacking out of desperation and hunger.

    That was the most brutal shark attack I had ever seen. First I was wondering how a shark could attack a jogger but then it all made sense to me.

    Thoughts and prayers. Thoughts and prayers. :(

    I think the jogger had it coming. How much human encroachment do these animals really need to take before something like this happens? We should expect it to happen more often. That's the sad reality.

    The worst is the poor shark is going to get blamed for what it does naturally and probably killed.
    So sad…
    :(
    Here comes Quint now.

    Around 50 million sharks are killed each year. I was happy to see this one shark fight back the evils of the human jogger.

    Wow that was terrible. Imagine jogging on the beach then BAM out of no where you become bait. :eek:
    My heart goes out to the family.

    Totally. I mean, he got all dressed up like that and jogged along the beach. It's just asking for it.

    Fact is that as a jogger he had much more chance of being run over by a car. This way he goes out with style.

    Good shark

    "Sometimes that jogger he looks right into ya. Right into your eyes. And, you know, the thing about a jogger... he's got lifeless eyes. Black eyes. Like a doll's eyes. When he comes at ya, doesn't seem to be living... until he runs past ya, and those black eyes roll over white and then... ah then you hear that terrible high-pitched screamin...":p

    How could you say that?

    The jogger had no idea what was about to happen to him. Don't blame the innocent jogger for animals behaving like animals. Sharks eat people, it's a fact of life. It's not the jogger's fault.
