I would venture there are more shark deaths worldwide every year than bear deaths. Just a guess, didnt look it up. I like our wet NW part of WA state.
No venomous snakes, no huge spiders and very few dangerous ones. Black bear but not locally, no griz. Scariest thing around here lately was that awful Giant Asian Hornet! Thankfully they got most of them rounded up.
We do have some nasty stinging Yellow Jacket wasps in summer and I have been stung a few times, extremely painful but usually not life threatening.

I’ll take any of them over bears, thank you.
???? But you can hunt bears. I would hunt a Bear. We cannot hunt any natives in Australia and generally cannot kill them being protected except in rare exceptions.
Found that in Wikipedia :oops: :

It has even been observed how bull sharks swam 1100 km from the sea up the Mississippi River.
In 1990, after a flood in a lake, some bull sharks were trapped at the golf club in Carbook, Logan City, Australia. Since then, the sharks have been living in this lake and are admired there as an attraction. Every month there is even a tournament called Shark Lake Challenge
Why didn’t they just remove them? No way the greenies will just ensure they are protected, even at the golf course.

@PaulT
They have plenty of sharks in the USA, but they wear suits and are called lawyers.

Well I look at this way, nobody wants to see a cop or a lawyer, until they need one. Then they are very happy to see them.
And no I am not a lawyer or a cop.

My wife informed me this morning that a tourist company located at Lake Kariba has started Para Sailing. In there defense they "say you will land back on the boat". Can you picture looking down and seeing a 5 meter croc?

I do not know where this video was posted, but I would very much like to see it.

Hello Milan, I just watched your video on disassembling/reassembling the CZ 550. I have spent days looking for something like this. I now have no reservations taking apart my rifle. I like to do this with all my guns so I understand them "inside and out". Thank you very much for the information. It is greatly appreciated.
