SHARK ALERT: Hua Hin fisherman says not a question of 'if' but 'what kind' attacked tourist

i have seen sharks 1 meter to 1.5 meter long when snorkeling on the east coast of Ko Tao. So why wouldn't they be wandering up north ?  Absolutely credible. 

 

Although the cut looks more like a slash, and it could easily have been caused by broken barnacles on rocks and the coral remains off the beach of Hua Hin. Myself I have slashed my lower legs once on some of these barnacles, they are razor sharp

No - it was a shark.

“ with experts in a boat looking into the matter”......

Does that mean The Cousteau Society or Earth Island Institute?

Or the usual cast of characters?

Oops, sorry, misquoted. Should read “experts in a speed boat”.

thai beach safety patrol or lifeguards have 00 experience with shark safety. if they did the beach where the guy was bit would have closed for the rest of the day then conditions reviewed next day.  oz and hawaii have very good water safety professionals

Yes, I am familiar with what they look like. 

Are you familar with the scrhatches from the Hua Hin rocks? The local doctors are, and see them quite often. Im still in doubt, but we will see when the accident emergency commission have finished their work if this was an shark attack or not. 

 

Next week we see 150 dead sharks pics together with all important officials in the district and national navy telling the beaches is safe again.

 Perhaps some good pictures of the wound sent off to these folks would be of some help. 

That would be the best solution, time and money saver, if they managed to do that first of all. So far I have only seen a poor picture of the wound.

The wounds in the pic are very consistent with a shark bite.

yes, the wound even look like a bite as can see the semi circle shape, from toes to lower shin.

The shark come at him from behind on the left side as he was swimming.

 

anyways, cant see how you can get those sort of wound, and on the TOP of foot like that from barnacle/rock?

 

i dont think the guy would be that stupid to be swimming near barnacled rocks anyway

So with 400 sharks to choose from or the 14 species in Thai waters all with different teeth for different diets which species do think  made the bite on that man's foot?

Like I said, I am familiar with what shark bites look like. And "scratches" from rocks and coral. I'd put money on the shark.

It was good enough. How much detail do you want?

It is an dead end discussion of amatours included me, and just have to wait anyone with proper information and proofs.

Where? 

 

Anyway it is a dead end discussion. People on site, doctors, good pictures, experts on  shark bites, and the person himself will hopefully solve this mystery, and I will accept the outcome. Until then, I will still swim in Hua Hin waters, or any shark infected waters in or around Thailand.

If they bite, they spit us out again after they reckon the mistake. The more shit you smell and pie the better :)
