The great white mystery goes on

great white shark
Here' s the latest on a story that has been driving me crazy for over a week...
Shark sushi?

Admittedly, (I prefer to say "wisely") I more or less ignored this story when it originally hit the Internet about a week ago.

To summarize things, a tagged great white disappeared but, the tag itself survived, went deeper, and recorded a higher temperature than anticipated, leading some scientists to theorize that an unknown predator devoured the great white.

It's a sweet idea and I'm sure I would be only one of several to rejoice if a new sea creature was discovered. However, I have to put this in the same class as UFO's, Bigfoot, and the Loch Ness Monster--I want to believe but....

Here's my take--these tags or tracking devices are mechanical--right? Well, mechanical devices sometimes fail and I think the tag simply fell off. Kind of mundane but, life is like that. After that, a fish was drawn to the tracker either by light or electronic impulse, and later pooped it out. That's nature, folks.

As for the shark--maybe a squid got it. On the other hand, maybe nothing happened and it's enjoying a shrimp dinner as you read this. Who knows where it is? After all, ya gotta remember that tracking device fell off!

Remember to take the hooks outta yer pocket before ya sit down!
