Shocking footage has emerged of a massive bull shark circling around in a Gold Coast swimming enclosure, as a little girl narrowly escapes danger.
The footage shows a two metre bull shark cruising in the water of a swimming enclosure at Tippler’s camping ground at South Stradbroke Island on the Gold Coast.
Jeanette Haskew, 42, filmed the video while on a family holiday with her partner and four-year-old daughter, Grace Zipf.
Jeanette Haskew, 42, was on holidays with her family when she spotted a massive five foot bull shark circling in the swimming enclosure at Tippler’s camping ground on the Gold Coast
Grace Zipf, 4 (pictured), was ‘playing on the beach with her dollies’ just metres away from the bull shark which was cruising around in the nearby swimming enclosure
At 9.45 am on Sunday, Ms Haskew took her daughter to the swimming enclosure for a splash.
Luckily, before Grace entered the pool, a fellow holiday-maker spotted an unusual shape in the water.
‘We were parked up and we normally do go straight in for a swim, or she normally goes straight in for a swim, should I say,’ said Ms Haskew.
‘It was just a little bit cold, so she was just sort of playing on the beach with her dollies, her little mermaid dolls,’ she said.
‘I think it was a bull shark, I’m not an expert though, but I think it was a bull shark and it was five foot long atleast, between five and six foot, but definitely five foot,’ Ms Haskew said
Ms Haskew initially thought it was a dolphin, but realised that it was a massive bull shark circling the water.
‘It was sort of doing laps, I think, of the enclosure, trying to find a way out, coming right up to the shoreline and you know, swimming off again,’ she said.
‘And it only did that a few times, two times maybe. And then, it didn’t resurface again.
‘I think it was a bull shark, I’m not an expert though, but I think it was a bull shark and it was five foot long atleast, between five and six foot, but definitely five foot.’
Ms Haskew was not afraid of the shark and enjoyed the novelty of seeing the creature in a swimming pool.
‘I wasn’t scared at all, it was more exciting, because that’s not something you see everyday,’ she said.
