Sharks infest golf course lake
Mon, 10 Oct 2011 11:38a.m.
Half a dozen sharks are infesting the lake of a golf course near Brisbane, Australia, amusing golfers as they tee off next to the fascinating predators.
The bull sharks were washed into the lake on the 14th course of the Carbrook Golf Club from a nearby river during heavy flooding.
After the floodwaters receded, the sharks were stranded in the lake.
However, they appear to be thriving in the well-stocked lake, and some of them are even breeding.
The sharks are fed occasional treats.
Blair McLean, a groundsman for the club, said he didn't mind the sharks being there.
"It's all right, as long as you don't get too close." He added, "It's never been this close, obviously," just as a shark made an appearance in the lake next to him.
The presence of the sharks, some of which are nearly 3 metres (10 feet) long, doesn't seem to have put off the golfers.
One club member recounted the first time she saw them.
"First time I ever saw him was some men were feeding, and he came up and it was just like Jaws, coming up out of the water," she said.
