An Australian woman on the Gold Coast was quite surprised when she woke up Sunday morning to a five-foot bull shark in her backyard.
Jodie Atkins went out into her yard Sunday morning to find that a dead bull shark had rained down during the night. She immediately did what most of us would do and posted a picture of the shark onto Facebook.
“It certainly surprised me because it was quite big and we have never had anything like this happen before,” she said.
The neighborhood all took pictures to commemorate the odd event and then the dead shark was pulled back into the current at a beach nearby with the help of a jet ski.
There have been other instances where sharks have been thought to be caught in storms and brought to shore usually be flooding. But the scientific explanations do not lessen the shock of finding a shark in your yard!
