Aus beaches close as sharks eat dead whale

Local media reported that there were around 30 sharks feeding on the whale, including tiger sharks and bronze whalers. The species of whale has not yet been determined.

The carcass was first spotted on Monday (November 15) afternoon out at sea, but by Tuesday it was located around 100 metres away from the populated shore.

The Western Australia Department of Fisheries is set to tow the whale three kilometres west of the island.
