Shark attacks of 2023

And why they happened

Even though the movie Jaws has given sharks a reputation. Sharks have more to fear in people than people do of them. Only 91 people were bitten and only 10 out of those 91 people were fatal. 22 of those bites were provoked, meaning that the human was provoking the animal. Although all the other shark attacks typically happen by the shark thinking that a person on a surfboard is a seal. Which is what they usually target for food. You are more likely to die from a mosquito than you are from a shark attack and I think the numbers I have shared are good odds that resemble that statistics.
