Islanders spooked by half-eaten shark carcass
A GORY shark carcass that washed ashore on Bribie Island has sparked fear in locals of bigger predators in the popular surfing spot.
G'Day Adventure Tours owner Jason Brown found the half-eaten creature on washed up on the North Side of the island on Monday.
"It must have been attacked by a big tiger shark," Mr Brown said.
"The day before that I had only just seen spearfisher men out 200m off shore.
"It's a good thing it wasn't one of them."
It follows reports of a seven-foot bull shark biting a surfer's board at a Bribie Island beach last October.
Further north, a young girl was bitten by a shark off North West Island near Yeppoon yesterday.
Surfer Brad Highlands said the attack left everyone shaken up.
