A great white shark captured in the wake of an attack on a surfer south of Perth has died and been disposed of at sea, Western Australia’s Department of Fisheries has confirmed. The 4.2-metre shark was caught on a drum line close to where 29-year-old Ben Gerring was attacked at Falcon Bay beach in Mandurah.

A group of tourists have been treated to a stunning display of nature off the Western Australian coast. They encountered more than seventy tiger sharks feasting on a whale carcass. Drones and cameras were used to film the spectacle, capturing the sharks feeding and circling their food. The tour was making its way up the coast from Geraldton to Broome when it ran into the awe-inspiring sight.
This footage shows a team of divers awaiting the arrival of sharks after luring the animals to them with the use of tuna heads hanging from ropes. The team of experienced divers however could not have bargained for such a close encounter with one of the animal kingdom’s most efficient killing machines!
Deep in the ice of the Antarctic, a team of geologists uncover an old Nazi laboratory, still intact, where dark experiments had occurred. Unwittingly the geologists unleash upon the world a top-secret experiment the Germans had been working on – modified sharks that are able to fly, whose riders are genetically mutated, undead super-humans. The only thing that can stop them, and possibly save the world, is a military task force called “Dead Flesh Four“ – assembled from reanimated U.S. soldiers who fell in Vietnam.
Cage stars as Capt. Charles Butler McVay, whose ship was torpedoed in the South Pacific in July of 1945, after delivering parts for the first atomic bombs. Because the ship was without an escort, the Indianapolis was not reported missing until four days later. Of 1,197 crewmen aboard, approximately 300 went down with the ship, while the rest faced exposure, dehydration, saltwater poisoning and shark attacks as they waited for assistance. Only 317 sailors survived, and McVay was court-martialed, then exonerated more than half a century later.
In the new full-length trailer for The Shallows, Lively plays a surfer/medical student who escapes to a secluded beach, ironically named Paradise. But her whole Blue Crush vibe gets obliterated when a shark chomps on her leg and dines on a pair of nearby surfers. Suddenly, she’s stranded on a rock a couple hundred feet from the shore, as her nemesis circles around her. Oh sh*t. I’m keen to see this one, are you?
“A shark attack has been the greatest thing that’s ever happened to me.” Mike Coots, a surfer and photographer, didn’t let a life-threatening encounter with a tiger shark dampen his love for the ocean. Not only did he get right back in the water as soon as he could, he is now a pioneer of amputee surfing and pushes the limits of prosthetic technology.
“So this just happened. We were on our Yamaha FX Cruiser jet ski touring up the western side of Fraser Island, we noticed a shadow in the water and realised in was a rather large shark. We decided to get a little closer to take some video footage and we clearly got a little too close! No one was injured although the jet ski did get some scuff marks where the shark contacted the ski. I literally had to move my leg so it didn’t get mauled!” – Libby Williams.
Surf lifesavers from Scarborough used a small boat to herd the shark into deeper water. It comes as beaches across Sydney’s south were recently closed after a surfer was nudged off his board by a shark. The man was surfing at Cronulla at about 11.15am on Easter Monday when he encountered the shark. Police don’t usually become involved in shark-patrol duties, and the West Australian had fun with its story, leading with this paragraph: “Even the most intimidating predators can’t escape the long arm of the law.”
A fleet of fishing vessels is actively fishing on the high seas of the Indian Ocean using drift nets, a form of fishing banned by the United Nations in 1992 due to its indiscriminate and destructive impact. The Steve Irwin first intercepted the fleet of vessels engaged in illegal fishing in January 2016. Now, Sea Shepherd has released shocking photographs and video of the encounter, showing sharks, dolphins, seals, and multiple species of fish, including critically endangered Southern Bluefin tuna, entangled and dead in the illegal nets.
If you admire an animal, you don’t need to torture it for a photograph. Wasn’t it already bad enough that a baby dolphin was killed earlier this month after beachgoers pulled it out of the water so people could take selfies with it? And now, this guy, who remains anonymous, runs into the ocean in Palm Beach, Florida, and pulls a shark out of the water and then pins it down in the sand so a group of people can take photos of him.
