Whale sparks shark fears

Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - NEWS -

A shark ad­vice re­mained in place yes­ter­day af­ter a whale car­cass washed up south of Buf­falo Beach near The Cut.

The car­cass – be­lieved to be a hump­back and about 5m in length – was re­ported to Parks and Wildlife Ser­vice of­fi­cers about 2pm Satur­day.

Peo­ple in the area were asked to be care­ful in lo­cal wa­ters as the de­com­pos­ing whale could at­tract sharks closer to shore.

The car­cass is the sec­ond to wash up in the South West in as many weeks with a 12m hump­back whale wash­ing up in Bun­bury on Septem­ber 9.
