A recent report confirmed how the Department of Environment and Conservation has managed to pull out a whale carcass from Smiths Beach in Yallingup. It was some two weeks ago that the same department had hidden the carcass in sand dunes.
While there were fears expressed that it might be seep whale oil into the ocean, thereby pulling in the sharks to the spot, the department assured that nothing like this would happen. Nonetheless, they had to shift the carcass due to rising concerns from the nearby communities.
Moreover, the department has placed a sign there mentioning not to swim or surf in this area, though admitting that it may attract sharks too. "Many people will choose to disregard the sign, when there's a shark attack you still see surfers in the water later that day, so people will make their own assessment", said DEC Blackwood district manager Greg Mair, while making it clear that these signs are mere precautions for people.
No matter how much the department tried to assure that there would be no risk at all, it was seen that opposition to the same was enormous, as it is feared that callous attitude of the department can have severe effect on one and all.
