4WDs Banned From Shark Fishing

The Australian Government banned the use of four-wheel-drives and surfboards to catch great white sharks after a group of men were caught catching and releasing great whites by using a surfboard to swim bait out to the sharks, and then landing them from a chair mounted on a 4WD vehicle... If you ask me, attracting sharks closer to the shore doesn't sound good for anyone.

Getting caught gets you a $22,000 fine, six months in jail, or both.
