Every time I've checked the shark sightings app lately there's been around 20 a day in Perth metro.

WTF?

The ones in the news at Whitfords were strange. Middle of day, 3m tiger in knee deep water almost beaching themselves. 4 separate sharks in a couple of days

Dunno. The clubbie on tv reckoned he'd been working the beach for 40 years and barely seen sharks there before

Its a dog beach, so its highly likely that a couple of pooches frolicking in the shore break attracted the sharks.

Maybe, I was thinking the beach was down near Hillary’s but it’s closer to Mullaloo

Yes.
Just have the DPI on my Twitter feed and this lot looked like a bit of an anomaly

And IMO the receivers might be great for gathering data but worth bugger all for those actually in the water.

There's a lot of cray nets adjacent to the breaks around Mandurah and the owners have been reporting the unusual presence big tigers all over the place for a month now

Six days now. Thought they’re not supposed to hang around the one spot. That or it’s karked it and rolling around the bottom near the receiver.
