It's A Sharknado At Bondi! Swimmers Evacuated The Water After A Third Shark Was Spotted In A Week

Another shark has been spotted at Bondi Beach – this is the third in a week.

Beachgoers were forced out from the water by lifeguards when the shark was spotted at the north end of the beach yesterday afternoon, after a 2.15m dead great white had been pulled from the nets that morning.

Lifeguards went out on jet skis to move the animal on, but the shark had swum away before they reached it.

It was the third sighting this week – the first was a 2.5m great white in the nets on Wednesday.

Waverley Mayor Sally Betts told Fairfax Media that swimmers must be “really vigilant” following the multiple sightings.

“I was told that the other day there were quite a lot of fish in the sea at the moment. That’s normally when the sharks come in, when they’re following fish.”

One Twitter user caught the shark in action.

Meteorologists have tipped that temperatures in Sydney could go as high as 40 degrees if coastal sea breezes don’t come through in the afternoon. Currently the mercury sits 29C at Bondi.

And from the looks of the Bondi Beach Surf Cam, the heat is winning out over the threat of the sharks as beachgoers enjoy the waves.
