Abstract:

Off the coast of South Africa, tourists are being lowered into shark-infested waters and paying for the privilege. With nothing but a steel cage separating them from the jaws of great whites and plenty of bait to lure the beasts closer, customers are guaranteed an experience they won't forget. As 'cage diving' has risen in popularity however, so have the number of deaths by shark attacks. Coincidence, or have these deadly creatures learned to associate humans with an easy meal? In this episode, Dr. Brady Barr travels to South Africa to investigate a cultural phenomenon with a lethal side-effect.
