Bodyboarder killed by great white

BUNKER BAY (AUSTRALIA)- Dark seas, whales and seals had created “perfect shark conditions” when a 21-year-old bodyboarder was bitten in half and instantly killed by a suspected great white at a West Australian surf break.

Surfers had seen several great whites in the area recently, which had possibly been lured by pods of whales passing Cape Naturaliste. A colony of seals also lives about 800m from the surf spot.
