TWO bull sharks have been spotted swimming past the McDonald’s restaurant in [the Australian town of] Goodna [near Brisbane].
Goodna butcher Steve Bateman saw one of the sharks swimming through the flooded waters of Williams Street near his bucher’s shop in the St Ives shopping centre yesterday.
There were several reports of another shark spotted in Queen Street, the main street through Goodna.
Bull sharks have been spotted in the Goodna sections of the Bremer River previously, with fishermen regularly catching them from the Goodna boat ramp.
Ipswich councillor for the Goodna region Paul Tully said while it may sound almost too bizarre to be real, the shark sighting was valid.
“It would have swam several kilometres in from the river, across Evan Marginson Park and the motorway,” Cr Tully said.
