A whale carcass stuck on Wattamolla Beach south of Sydney since September 17 has attracted a number of sharks to the inlet, preventing swimmers from entering the water.
Nine News reported that officials from the NSW Environment Office were considering whether to tow the whale back out to sea. A spokesperson said the whale’s size, as well as the beach’s location, meant disposal options were limited.
