Encounter With The Great White Shark Scared The Fishermen

While fishing, 24-year-old Tim Watson and his friend Allan de Sylva, 23, suddenly found their small boat being stalked by a 5-metre-long great white shark near Newcastle in New South Wales. This incident took place after the Newcastle City Council closed the public beaches after the great white sharks were observed there.

The friends described the apex predator as a metre longer than their boat and only a ‘half a foot’ narrower than it. Watson told the Newcastle Herald of his experience: “It felt like getting trapped in a room with an angry pit bull.It wouldn’t leave us alone, you almost wanted to stop and admire it but it was being pretty aggressive.It was as big as a wagon car – that’s what it felt like looking at it.
