There is a large population of tiger sharks around Maui, which has evidently contributed to the increased number of attacks, though officials don't know exactly why that is, other than potentially because of the combined conditions of shallow water and high populations of people swimming there.\nFor now, authorities have posted a notice warning swimmers in the area of the shark.\nTo read the full Fox News report, including the detailed description by witness Allison Keller, head to their article here.
