JAWS has been found.... and tagged

Post by veya_victaous on Wed Apr 16, 2014 2:45 am



MAKE no mistake, Jaws is out there. And we have a picture to prove it.

This photo shows the size of a great white shark tagged twice by Fisheries Department officers last month.

The female has been detected lurking off West Australia’s south coast prompting a caution to swimmers to beware.

The 5-metre shark was detected near Albany at the weekend when a distressed whale beached itself.

Local beaches were closed to allow the removal of the carcass but the monster shark is believed to have remained in the area.

Mark Kleeman, from the Department of Fisheries, said the great white has been detected regularly near Albany since it was fitted with an internal acoustic tag last month.

Here's hoping the media attention doesn't inspire someone to try to kill the great lady ...

Not by a long shot, their corpses have been recovered measuring 6.5, and reports have 8-meter sharks have been made.

I understand though that they don't tend to target humans unless they're pretty desperate or they smell blood ...

Very good friend of Son's who had emigrated to Aus came to visit last Christmas. He lives in Perth and has a wicked humour.

He recalled the day he was fined on Perth beach by the Police............... Unamed shouted " Shark " and to his delight all the swimmers left the Ocean rapidly............ He reckoned he had never laughed so much and seen people move so quickly. He was fined $200 Aus by the beachboys for stupidity........

well of course the swimmers left the water. WTF did he think they would do?
I doubt he truly appreciates how irresponsible that is, it is the equivalent of Yelling FIRE in a crowded building.

It really is not too dangerous to swim here because we have people who watch for sharks coming into shore and do come onto the beach and Yell SHARK to get people out of the water.
