Shark beached itself after being chased by 'larger creature'

A SHARK beached itself on Shelly Beach at Ballina this morning after being chased what has been described as a 'larger creature'.

The Shark Reports Facebook page said the small shark was possibly a bull shark.

"A small shark has been chased into the shallows by a larger creature, possibly another shark, at the northern end of Shelly Beach at East Ballina," the page reported.

"The shark beached itself, and has been dragged by authorities back into the water at 0715am.

"Thanks for the pic, Michelle Edwards, of police putting it back into the water."
