Worried about New Zealand’s smelly beaches? Swimming in sewage? Poisoned by toxic algae? And wondering it couldn’t possibly get any worse?

Sharks chase surfers out of water!

The South Island’s nincompoop police have issued a warning after a “very large shark” chased two surfers out of the water near Dunedin.

The surfers spotted the shark  near Karitane Beach, 30 kilometers north of Dunedin.

According to a local, a seven-gill shark had attacked a young boy previously, “leaving him with eight stitches.”

“We do get a lot of them in shallows, especially when the water is dirty like this.”

The police said that it was “not wise for people to be swimming in the area.”

“Hastings man Greg Sims, 49, was swimming near the Tukituki River mouth earlier this month when he was bitten on the back of his leg by what was believed to be a broadnose seven-gill shark.” A report said.

“While in December, fisherman Ken Lindberg spent five days in hospital after being bitten by a shark, believed to be a bronze whaler, while fishing with a friend off Maraetai near Auckland.”
