WA proposed shark cull extension to be assessed

Western Australia’s bid to extend its controversial shark-cull programme of catching, destroying and dumping sharks of more than 3m in length by another three years is to be assessed by the State’s Environmental Protection Authority.

The proposal involves the setting of up to 72 baited drum lines off metropolitan and south-west coastal regions of WA for four and a half months each year for three years. It would commence November 15, 2014 and ceasing April 30, 2017, after which the program would be subject to review.
