Chattanooga, Tenn.,  A Tennessee woman’s “Summer Safety Tips” video posted to her Facebook page in the wake of the recent shark attacks off the coat of the Carolinas is going viral.

The video posted by Veronica-Pooh Nash Poleate in late June has more than 6.7 million views, over 42,000 likes and nearly 224,000 shares, as of Friday afternoon.

In the video, Poleate shares her thoughts on the shark attacks and offers ways folks can avoid being bitten.

“I’m not going to the ocean, because that’s the shark’s house,” she said in the video. “The shark has the right to eat you up if you in his house. When chickens come in my house, guess what? They get ate.”
