Cu­ri­ous shark no fan of a Fan­ning feast

Townsville Bulletin - - OPINION -

AS some­one who knows a bit about the area where Mick Fan­ning had the shark scare I would like to add my com­ment.

Firstly Mick Fan­ning is a very lucky per­son BUT if the shark was a four me­tre great white as re­ported then it didn’t want Mick on the menu. If it was a se­ri­ous at­tack then he would have been dead by now.

At­tacks usu­ally come from be­low the per­son as the shark comes from depth up­wards to its prey.

This shark was most likely cu­ri­ous as to who else was in the area and came into con­tact with his an­kle rope which then caused the shark to panic, a bit like Mick re­ally.

A scared shark and a flus­tered Mick made a news­wor­thy spec­ta­cle but he was not on the menu.

CEDRIC GREEN,

Nome.

He’s be­hind you Mick.
