Interesting: Maneaters SharksChasing the wild

The series in Maneaters is a fascinating insight into the psychology of wild animals — and humans — revealing the precarious balance between man and beast, through the eyes of those who got on the wrong side of the natural world.

Millions of people go on the beach and wilderness holidays every year. But what people do not know is that wildlife attacks on humans are on the increase as more people move into the final domains of the wildest animals.

Investigating Sharks, the episode demonstrates not only why animals attack humans, but also how people can avoid life-threatening encounters out in their habitat. Maneaters Sharks airs on December 21 on Animal Planet at 8 pm.
