: meaning of the idiom "to smell bood in water "

Sharks attack will they smell blood in the water. In other words, if a swimmer is wounded and bleeding the sharks can smell it. So, in the the work world or otherwise if a person is in a weakened condition people will take advantage of the situation.(Same way with chickens. If one chicken has a spot of blood, the others will peck him to death. Cruel world, isn't it.)
