Bondi 'monster' shark spotted

Well, it DOES mention it's rugby related... and I read a report recently that sharks might be extinct within 10 years, that might apply to the Sharks as well...

A large shark spotted off Bondi had scores of onlookers "screaming like monkeys" as swimmers rushed from the water.

The four to five-metre long shark was seen in the waters off Mackenzie Point in Bondi at 6pm yesterday.

About 100 terrified onlookers screamed warnings to swimmers and a resident alerted the Bondi Life Guard Service.

Two lifeguards on jet-skis were sent out to warn the estimated 500 people swimming at Bronte, Tamarama and Bondi beaches at the time.

"There were 100 people up the top screaming like monkeys," said Anthony Carroll, one of the lifeguards who went out on jet-skis to alert swimmers.

With the help of onlookers, the two jet-ski riders quickly cleared the area around the shark of swimmers.

"We moved on probably 10 people from the vicinity of where the shark was spotted," Carroll, a 10-year lifeguard veteran, said.

"They were everything from a spear-fisherman to board paddlers, swimmers and sea paddlers."
Carroll, 29, described the shark as a "monster".
"My estimate of its size would have to be, by the look of the fin, 14 feet [4.3 metres], 15 feet. The fin stood half a metre out of the water."

But he said he wasn't scared by the shark.
"I wasn't scared. I was just in awe," he said. "We're in its backyard, you kind of respect it. You have respect for the beast of the ocean.

"I've spent my whole life in the ocean and had close encounters with one shark before, but this thing was the king of the ocean. I mean, it could have eaten us at any time."
Carroll said the Life Guard Service had patrolled the coast this morning but found no sign of the shark.

Did you see the shark or do you have photos of the shark?

i cannot believe you called 'sharks rugby' rugby related!!!!

shame on you
Sea Dragonssssss!!!!!

Putt Putt Putt...where are you?

Do you take responsibility for setting up a training camp foir the Sharks rugby team in Australia

They're all wrong of course

It was actually just Victor Matfield enjoying a swim on the beach during his annual holiday in Australia and the 'fin' is actually just his 'wille' hairstyle...

Those Aussies should come for swim in Gansbaai if they think that 4 metres is a big shark....

Wanna hear a great joke?

Ok, here goes:



Interesting thing...

Do a google search on "ruggaworld", you should have one result returned.

It looks like a site has linked to our story about Payne... pays/afrique_centrale/index.en.html

But I can't find the story on their site, I think it's embedded deep within one of their links.

Still, someone's picked us up!! Whoopee!! Well done, PA!

Done good

Have you linked us to ananzi yet?


Trawling for us on the web?
