Conservationists slam Australia shark policy as more killedConservationists on Monday slammed the baiting and killing of sharks at a popular Great Barrier Reef tourist spot after two swimmers were attacked, saying the policy was brutal and indiscriminate. Queensland state authorities deployed drumlines — which use baited hooks to catch the predators — at the Whitsunday Islands after two tourists were mauled in separate incidents a day apart last week. Hannah Papps, 12, and 46-year-old Justine Barwick, who were bitten on their legs, remain in hospital.
