edited GROSS inaccuracy about the rogue shark theory
== Attacks on humans ==
Most attacks on surfers and bathers are believed to cases of mistaken identity, and they are generally not finished off, their [[flavor]] comparing poorly with that of a [[blubber]]y [[pinniped]].
However, although it is rare, there are cases of rogue individuals who were purposely attack humans. The book and film ''[[Jaws]]'' is based on these rogue individuals.
Great white sharks have recently become rare due to human persecution, and are now protected in [[South Africa]] and [[Australia]].
