Two five metre great white sharks have been spotted off Newcastle, closing beaches along the Australian east coast for a record seventh day in a row.
The Daily Telegraph also caught one of the 1.7 tonnes beasts mauling a passing dolphin just off Burwood Beach on Thursday.
Photos caught the moments after the attacks, which took place about 50 metres off the coast of the public beach. Poor dolphin.
Despite all the beaches being closed, local surfers ventured into the deep, and reported sightings of the animals.
"Yesterday morning there were five surfers over at Stockton [Beach]. They all saw a shark. And the next report we had was by a fellow in a gyrocopter. He spotted the big shark, five metres long, out at the southern end of Merewether ocean baths," Peter Whiters from Newcastle Council told ABC News.
"(Lifeguards) also saw a dolphin that had been attacked. It had some injuries and some bite marks out of it."
