Day 71: Found out early this morning there had been a shark attack not far from where I live, and not any better, they were people I know. Shocking to think it can happen (which we know there is always a possibility when you swim in the ocean) but it is always somewhere else or to someone we don’t know. Thankfully it all ended well (as well as can be for a shark bite)
- He is still alive
- Not too badly hurt (few stitches) and embedded shark teeth removed.
- Found out it wasn’t a baby great white (which they initially thought) but a wobbegong (which are know to be quite passive).
- Beach was closed to prevent further danger.
Will I be going back in the water anytime soon….no way, I’m sticking to the rockpool!
For those belittling it as only a “scratch”, find some empathy, I wonder if you would call it a scratch if a wobbegong bit you!
