Owners ‘Traumatized’ After Dog Is Taken By Shark at Australian Beach

The owners of an American Staffordshire terrier named Molly watched in horror as their pet was snatched by a shark on an Australian beach on Sunday.

The rescue dog was fetching a stick from the water off Bonna Point Reserve in a suburb of Sydney, Australia, when a shark pulled her underwater, the Sydney Morning Herald reports.

The dog’s owner, Nigel, told the newspaper there was nothing he or his wife could do to stop the predator — believed to be a bull shark — from grabbing the dog in the spontaneous attack.

“We were pretty traumatized, it was horrific,” said Nigel, who withheld his last name. “We were just throwing the stick in the water. The tide was really far out and there was a bit of a drop off .”

The Herald reports that the Sutherland Shire Council has now warned swimmers and pet owners walking dogs on the off-leash beach not to enter the water. Signs have been posted about the incident, as well.

Nigel told the newspaper they were about to leave the beach when Molly, who they rescued from a shelter two years ago, was taken. Sadly, the couple didn’t see the dog again and her body hasn’t been found.

“It was very quick. It just took her under the water,” he said, adding that the shark was about 11 ft. long. “We just freaked out and we told a few people that we saw on the way back. I also rang the council to let them know.”

Install a "NO SHARKS ALLOWED" sign.   Problem solved.

Good riddance

Damn

A bull shark is the worst type to encounter. They can thrive in fresh water, and will attack close to shore in knee deep water. Very aggressive, territorial, and easy to provoke.

They also don't play fetch. They never bring anything back. 

Happened in the town i live in. The waterway here is absolutely full of bull sharks. This particular one has been hanging just offshore at the beach here for weeks.

Hey look its that guy.

FYI staffies are the most common breed here in Aus with fuck all attacks. Must be the lack of douche bag owners...

Well so much for my Game Pit x Bullshark thread.

Bravo

This is roughly how Jaws started. RIP Australia.

 

Is there a reason to get in any water other than a pool in Australia?

Why not harpoon it?

They are protected.

Not really. I don't get this outrage. People don't go strolling across the African savana and then complain about getting eaten by lions either, do they? Sharks live in the ocean so stay the fuck away from them if you don't want to get eaten.

As a Staffy owner I say fuck you.
