“A Shark bite is only one of many possible endings to a Shark Attack”
“An UNPROVOKED Shark Attack is only one of many types of Shark Attack”

When you see the words Unprovoked or Bite associated with Shark Attacks, someone is trying to hide shark dangers you may face should you enter the water. In most cases, the word unprovoked equals the number of incidents shared with the public. Any other type of Shark Attack is kept a secret from the public.

Arm, leg, where is the rest of Rafeek's body?
A SEARCH has been mounted by police officers on Trinidad's north-eastern for body parts.

Officers of the Sangre Grande and Matura Police Stations began combing the beaches on Sunday when an arm was dis-covered washed ashore at Rincon Beach, an area considered part of Matura Bay.
A leg was also found that evening at Balandra beach, but reported to police the next day by a man fearful of what he saw.
The arm and the leg are to undergo Deoxy-ribonucleic acid testing, police said, to determine whether they match.
The only similarity they bear so far by visual examination is that both were cleanly severed below the joint. Neither have identify-ing marks such as tattoos or scars. A senior officer said that the main investigation remains in the hands of the CID department, but would be handed over to homicide detectives when a body is found. Police fingerprint records have identified the hand belonged to Rafeek Mohammed, a 53-year-old man. His last address known to the police is Wilson Road, off Clarke Road, Penal. The police records reflect that in November 2010 he was charged by Matura police with the offence of possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking. Investigators are uncertain on the outcome of the case. On Tuesday the Express visited the area of the address given to police. Residents said they did not the recognise name of the man as anyone living in their community, nor were they aware that any-one within that age group had been missing. Police are appealing to family members to come for-ward and assist in their investigations. Anyone with information can contact Sangre CID at 691 0133, or Matura Police Station at 668 4511.

A simple explanation of the word unprovoked is chosen to be shared. Each year shark attack researchers choose certain shark attacks they share with the public. The ISAF website states, “All of the data publically available on the ISAF website is from unprovoked incidents.” Ocean users, beware that the ISAF has 6800 incidents on file, with only 3292, or 47%, being chosen to be shared with the public. In 2019 they chose 45%, and in 2020 they only chose 44% of the investigated incidents.
