Just a thought but.....The second amandment of the US Constitution says you have the right to bear arms against all foes, foreign or domestic. Therefore, If I was getting attacked by, or I felt my personal health/safety was being threatened by a Goliath or a Shark I would defend myself with deadly force without hesitation. If you ever got hauled in front of a judge for killing a protected species I would think you would have a valid 2nd amandment argument. I don’t see why that foe could not be an animal/fish instead of a person. I personally know 2 Divers who were attacked and suffered serious injury from a Goliath while spearfishing.

Re: Goliath Rodeo

Saw a very large GG yesterday. Came out of his hole, checked me out and ducked back in.

No following me or anything. I could clearly see a very fresh wound on his head, almost certainly from a spearshaft.
