I love Hillarys boat Harbour, it has to go down as one of the nicest, cleanest, most children friendly beaches I’ve ever seen.
Well, it would be if there wasn’t a four meter long great white lurking in the water!
Fisheries officers spotted the shark after reports it had been attracted by A decaying 15-tonne whale carcass which had washed up on the beach and was finally removed yesterday.
Tony Cappelluti, a dude from the Fisheries office warned water users to be aware of the possibility of sharks in the area.
â€œThe whale carcass had been there since the beginning of the week and because of that and the possibility of remnant residue, it is likely to provide an attractant to sharks at present,â€ he said.
â€œOne of the key tips in our shark safety information is to avoid areas where animal waste is in the water.â€
OK…. Animal waste + water = Sharks! Got it! Thanks for the tip Tony. 8)
Aussie life, you just have to love it! I don’t think this would happen on the Leeds Liverpool Canal :D
