Shark Sighting at Bonna Point, Kurnell

Published On 27 February 2017 at 04:30 PM

People are being warned not to enter the water off the Kurnell Peninsular and to prevent their dogs from swimming at the off leash beach at Bonna Point following an incident yesterday evening during which a dog was taken by a shark.

Council lifeguards are at the Kurnell beaches advising swimmers and pet owners to keep out of the water and they have installed signs to alert the public to the shark sighting.

NSW Department of Primary Industries advises people to avoid swimming or surfing when it is dark or during twilight hours and encourages the use of the SharkSmart app which has safety tips for swimmers, surfers, divers, snorkelers and spearfishers.
