Tiger shark recently seen in Mary Street Lagoon

 Hi All......  Just wondering if anyone has seen or heard anything about a 4m tiger shark that was allegedly seen in the Mary Street lagoon ( Mandurah ..Halls Head area )  last sunday.    A friend texted me to say he had been told about it but had no other info.  I launched from there last Thursday and don't like the idea of a noah hanging around while I am up to my thighs retrieving the boat .  Any news welcomed .

today on someones phone. Was definately there but while Im no expert, it looked visibly distressed to me. Was something wrong with it for sure, in my opinion. 

Was also a large sea turtle in the canals recently


These things happen from time to time. Nothing to be alarmed about imo

To me, there certainly looked not quite right about the way the shark was swimming, I can't say exactly what it was but it just didn't seem quite right.

 This looks like a dead shark swimming. Was probably dragged ashore by some noddy shark fisho for a photo and released to a slow horrible death.

Shark sighting ----Mary Street lagoon

Sat, 2018-04-21 21:13

  Thanks to all who replied to my post.  I have been down at the lagoon several times over the last couple of days but no sightings of a shark.  However I have noticed that there is a dolphin mother and her  new calf  swimming around the mouth of the estuary  and appear to be enjoying the water there.  Its only about 100 metres from the lagoon entrance so hope they will be ok if there is shark nearby.   A friend said he had seen the video of it and estimated it was about 3 metres long .

 I saw the video, it’s legit and around 2-2.5m max.. looked crook. I was down that exact spot with my dog that day and most others and have never seen the shark though
