NOOSA BEACH (AUSTRALIA)- A beach was closed rapidly when one shark was chasing another out of the water. Lifesavers pulled out a dying 2 meter long bull shark onto the beach.

Noosa Surf Club lifesavers on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast  quickly closed the beach after a surfer saw a large bull shark chasing a “sick” shark, and the body of a bull shark washed up on the sand.

The bull shark was chased out of the water by a 4 meter long shark. It appeared the larger shark was chasing the sick shark and it wallowed in the white water for a fair while with people looking on.

Sharks are said to be rare at Noosa Beach. Yet a large tiger shark, possibly three metres long, was spotted patrolling the waters of Noosa National Park in January and a 4.78m pregnant tiger shark weighing 500kg was captured off nearby Yarooma Beach.

Scientists say bull shark sightings increase following floods because of the species’  breeding habits.
