    (Some) sharks eat red meat, therefore they like to eat humans. Let’s just disregard the fact that virtually 100% of shark bites to humans do not result in the human being eaten.

    A faulty conclusion based on faulty statistics.

    Most murderers drink water, therefore water causes murder. Same methodology.

    I’ve read where people who have eaten human flesh say it has a sweet taste. I know from having been around bodies that were burned in a fire, that the flesh & blood gives off a sickeningly sweet smell that once you’ve smelled it… you will instantly recognize it if you ever smell it again… even 20 yrs later.

    Who knows, maybe sharks like the sweet taste of humans. I know dogs are suppose to drink anti-freeze because of the sweet taste.

    As for shark bites on humans… there have been countless news stories over the years about surfers / swimmers who have had arms & legs bitten off. Australia seems to have a abundance of these stories every year. I would think a human wouldn’t be completely eaten because in most cases the human is larger than a seal and has heavier / thicker bones.
