Ok, this is true Summer of Fear stuff in this article. Pure hysteria with nobody eaten at all. This summer has been all sharks and bears really, sorry cheetahs, but most of the articles have been pretty straight with hysteria coming into play only at the edges of the article. This article which posits that sharks do in fact swim in the ocean so we must stop allowing people in the water is the sort of article that Summer of Fear was meant to celebrate, that it comes from the masters of Fear at the Daily Mail only makes it sweeter. Besides, as David and Hjalti have pointed out, bears get chased off by purple headed hair dressers, and that is just making it much harder to be afraid of them.
So I think we have a winner for the Summer of Fear 2011, congratulations to the Shark, once again the champion of fear in the news. Better luck next year cheetahs, bears, spiders, leopards, hackers, anteaters, tigers and off course, squirrels.
